The weather has warmed up a bit this week. Seven of us did about a 7 Km walk today. We drove up Renfrew Rd and parked at the Kinsol Trestle parking lot. From there we walked to the Kinsol Trestle where we proceeded up the Koksilah River and followed te trail back to the Cowichan Valley Trail. The map and photos tell the rest of the story. -- DeNNis.
