Men's Walking Group

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.

On the way to the trestle this sign always draws a laugh.

Just about at the trestle.

For seniors and short legged people.

We arrive at the trestle.

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

A view from the other side of the trestle.

The top of the stump at left.

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

Looking back up.

Onto the Jack Fleetwood trail.

Water level is very low in the Koksilah river.

How and why was this chunk taken out of it.

Natural gas line crossing the Koksilah.

Watch your step.  The Jack Fleetwood trail
is full of tricky roots.

What kind of critter is this??  Looks like somebody's Pet Rock.

Eyes in the trees watching us.

One of a couple small bridges.

I hope these guys ducked.  There is another one ahead.

Back at the main trail.  Time for a rest.

Some of the original timbers left along the trail.

Back at the trestle heading the other way.
