Blue skies and sunshine for a pleasant walk to Kinsol Trestle and up the Koksilah River a ways. Nine of us drove out Renfrew Rd and Glen Eagles Rd to the Kinsol parking lot where we started our walk. Approximately 8 Km start to finish. Stopped for coffee at Shawnigan Coffee House on our return. Photos and map below. -- DeNNis.

At the far end of the trestle we go down and underneath it.

|The trail to down under the trestle is very steep in places.|

Watch your step. The Jack Fleetwood trail
is full of tricky roots.
|What kind of critter is this?? Looks like somebody's Pet Rock.|
