Eager to stretch car-cramped legs? The north end of the Cowichan Valley offers plenty of choice hikes.
Beachcomb along stretches of rocky shoreline or trek to mountain lookouts. The Visitor Centre supplies the all-purpose Cowichan Valley Regional District Parks & Trails Guide along with individual trail maps.
Wheelchair-accessible Kin Beach at the foot of Willow Street is a favourite hangout for kids (thanks to its playground) and family groups (who flock to its picnic area facing the sea). A short drive north of town on the Chemainus Road leads to Askew Creek Wilderness Park. A 45-minute return route bypasses large Douglas-fir, hemlock and western red cedar trees while following the creek. Keep an eye out for the eagle's nest.
