Change of Plans. Apparent rock slide on the Malahat so the 9 of us decided to do a walk on the newer portion of the Trans-Canada Trail off Stebbings Rd. Didn't encounter any rain until a few drops as we finished our walk. Finished with coffee at Shawnigan Coffee House. -- DeNNis.
|North is towards top left corner of map. Parked the cars off Stebbings Rd (right). Walked about 4 Km north on the trail and then turned around and retraced our steps back to the vehicles. Some fairly steep grades along this section of the trail.|
|Another map showing the area we were in.|
|Trailhead parking lot off Stebbings Rd.|
|A very steep start to the walk.|
|Lots of tall thin trees along the trail.|
|First bridge - very sturdily built.|
|This totem met us at the entrance to the bridge.|
|Shawnigan Creek water level is very low.|
|A second bridge - somewhat smaller.|
|Someone has been using some artistic license with the rocks.|
And a third bridge - smaller still.
Time to turn around and head back to the cars.
|Lots of growth sprouting from this old stump.|
|A very tall leaning tree.|
A couple of these signs
along the way.
