Traipse, tramp, trek, and toddle along on the Cowichan Valley's many and varied hiking trails.
The helpful staff at the Duncan-Cowichan Visitor Centre can supply tips, individual trail maps, and the all-purpose Cowichan Valley Regional District Parks & Trials Guide.
Cowichan River Footpath
The Cowichan River Footpath is an easy/moderate 20km/12mi route that follows the meandering course of the Cowichan (part of the Canadian Heritage Rivers System) from Glenora to Skutz Falls. It's one among a handful of walking trails in the Cowichan River Provincial Park, a favourite spot for fishing and swimming.
Those seeking a gentle stroll through the forest can try the loop trail from the Stoltz Pool day-use area.
