There are wonderful trails in our region.
The main one is the transcanada trail which links the two valleys via an old rail bed that once ran from Victoria to Lake Cowichan.
There is not much support for those going south to the Kinsol Trestle. There’s minimal parking on Waters Road.
From our vineyard (where you can park safely and for free) turn left on Marshall, right on Cavin and left on Waters. Go about 300 metres and you’ll see the trail: left to Koksilah and right to Lake Cowichan.
To get to Lake Cowichan along the trail, there’s a great parking and information space on Robertson Road.
Glenora Trailhead Park:
If you’re coming south (from Nanaimo): From the Trans Canada Highway, turn west onto Trunk Rd…Left onto Allenby Rd (turns into Indian Rd)…Right onto Glenora Rd…Right onto Vaux Rd (turns into Robertson Rd). The staging area is located on the left near Cowichan River Provincial Park.
