Men's Walking Group

My input from todays walk to Kinsol Trestle and Koksilah River.  The weather was great (better in the sunshine),  - no rain!   ---   DeNNis.

Parked at the Kinsol Trestle Parking Lot (bottom right), walked the Cowichan Valley Trail across and down under the Kinsol Trestle where we got onto the Jack Fleetwood Trail which we followed alongside the river for some distance then back along another trail to the Cowichan Valley Trail where we continued North aways before turning back and across the Trestle back to the cars.

Ooops! A little frost on the Kinsol Trestle deck - Watch your step!

The new observation deck at the north end of the Trestle.

And what I believe is going to be the Info Center - still has a
construction fence around it.

Looking from the observation deck - the brightness
is the sun shining through the mist from the river.

Looking way up!

Panoramic view from below. Note observation deck on left.

Interesting colouring in the river.

Lots of bright green moss in the trees.

One more river to cross - much smaller this time.

Turn around point.  The old Hobby Horse has seen better days.

Coffee at Shawnigan Coffee House.
