The Kinsol Trestle is one of eight trestles along the Cowichan Valley Trail route and by far the largest and most spectacular.

There are a couple possibilities to access the trail. I just had to walk about 400 meter to get to the bridge. Next to the bridge are some info signs and toilets. Many picnic tables around.



Short and easy walk (approx. 1.5km one way) to the top of an old Bridge.
