Glenora Park to Kinsol Trestle

›› The Cowichan Valley Trail is a great place to visit. There are a number of places and stretches to ride or walk this former rail line. Glenora Trail Park is a great place to start and to ride your bike the 15 kilometers to Kinsol Trestle. Before you head south though go north for a kilometer and visit the Holt River Trestle. Not as wide but just as spectacular as the Kinsol trestle. After your 30 km ride visit the Alderlea Biodynamic Farm and Organic Cafe for some great lunch fare or coffee. www.alderleafarm.com
