Men's Walking Group

An interesting 6Km trek for the 12 of us on the west side of Shawnigan Lake followed by coffee and complimentary cookies at Subway.  Reminder that next week is the last Monday of the month and plan is a road trip and a Mexican lunch in Victoria.  --  Brook


A good walk today along part of the Trans-Canada Trail from McGee Creek through Shawnigan Park and back along West Shawnigan Lk Rd. via some other streets.  No rain encountered and the company was good.  --  DeNNis.

The map should be pretty clear.  Follow the "yellow brick road" in a clockwise direction from where we parked the cars on Rebecca Rd near McGee Ck Trestle.

One or two trees across the trail due to our winter weather.

Heading into Shawnigan Lake Provincial Park.

This old tree is just tired.

Lots of bits and pieces under this big old tree.


Cormorants standing guard over Shawnigan Lake.

Panoramic view across the lake.


A none snowy area - good place to rest a bit and gab.

Lots of old dead-fall.

A scene from the past - notice the old gas pumps, telephone booth, carvings, etc. The photo does not do it justice.  Seen on Hepworth Road.

In the entrance to the above photo.

Looking across to Mt Baldy.

Some parts of the trail still quite snowy.

None observed.

McGee Creek Trestle.
