A warm summer day - perfect weather for a walk through Kingburne Park. We haven't walked there for about 4 years. Nine of us did about 6 to 7 Km (Down and Up - and a little bushwhacking) before heading back to Shawnigan Coffee House for a well deserved beverage. Map and photos below -- DeNNis.
|The park sign shows a very basic map.|
|A very steep trail with some stairways will take you right down to|
the Koksilah river.
|We found a faint trail which we assumed had not been well|
used or cared for.
|Some interesting old stumps and|
|A little wet and rough going in places.|
|Mother nature has used many of|
the old stumps for regrowth.
|We decided to backtrack a bit and got onto the proper trail.|
|We were sure we had the proper trail when we found the old|
mine shaft we had explored in previous years.
|A couple shots of the inside. It only goes in about 20 feet or so.|
|We count heads and carry on.|
|Have to watch our step as the trail is very narrow in places.|
|Back onto an access road which should take us back to|
where we started.
|A bit of colour in places.|
|No, we are not lost. There's the cars.|
