Glenrosa Farm is essentially located at the 30km post marker on the Galloping Goose Trail.
This regional trail is a 55-kilometer rail trail between downtown Victoria, and the ghost town of Leechtown, north of Sooke, where it meets the old Sooke Flowline.
This linear park is a rails-to-trails conversion, named after a 1920s gasoline powered passenger car that operated on this abandoned CNR line; now passes through urban, rural, and semi-wilderness landscapes.
