Kinsol Trestle - Trans-Canada Trail just south of Duncan BC on Vancouver Island

We recently completed a tour of Lake Cowichan in the beautiful Cowichan Valley. Our first stop was at the Kinsol Trestle, just south of Duncan. The Trestle was in bad shape and could no longer be used. It is now under re-construction and by early summer it will be open for use. If you have not been there, be sure to check it out. You can get the closest too it by going to the north side.

To get there, from the Trans-Canada Highway, turn west on to Koksilah Road, then drive under a narrow railway overpass (see pics on

Facebook) and then over a wooden bridge. Then turn left onto Riverside Road. Follow it on the pavement for 4.6 kilometers. The road then turns into a narrow gravel road for the next 4.7 km. When you come to a small parking area with several large boulders, you are there. A short walk will take you to the viewing are.

This trestle will be the river crossing for the Trans-Canada Trail.

If you go to our facebook page you can see more photos of the Kinsol Trestle and how it looked before resurection.
