Many people that move, or come back, to the Cowichan Valley enjoy an active lifestyle. One of the things we have in plentiful supply are beautiful trail systems. Whether you are taking the dog for a walk, looking for a day hike, out on your mountain bike or looking for a place to take ride your horse, the Valley has it.
Much work has been done to develop systems such as the Cowichan Valley Trail http://www.cvrd.bc.ca/index.aspx?NID=121 and our sections of the Trans Canada Trail.
Drive up to the top of The Properties in Maple Bay and you will find access to a myriad of trails including one that leads to the well-known “Cross” with a views out over Quamichan and Somenos Lake as well as south over Cowichan Bay. Breathtaking. http://www.northcowichan.ca/files/%7B84E6D73C-BBC5-4536-BDA1-36D9FAD0244B%7Dtzouhalem.pdf
Other interesting trails include Bright Angel Park with its suspension bridge http://www.cvrd.bc.ca/index.aspx?NID=150 or the Kinsol Trestle Trail (part of the Trans Canada Trail) leading to the restored Kinsol Trestle http://www.cvrd.bc.ca/index.aspx?NID=1379 .
The list is endless and you will always have something to do in the Beautiful Cowichan Valley!
