Description A multi-day trip in Cowiichan Valley. Some may stay for two nights, while others stay for four nights, but to be most affordable, priority will be to have the bedrooms full each night.  We will be staying at Eaglenest Sanctuary, a yoga retreat, along the Koksilah River and near to Kinsol Trestle.  Accommodation information here: http://eaglenestsanctuary.com/rental/   and here: http://eaglenestsanctuary.com/gallery/
Possible hiking destinations include: Kinsol Trestle, Skutz Falls along Cowichan River, Maple Mountain, Mt Tzouhalem, Stocking/Heart Lake Trails, hikes close to Eaglenest Sanctuary: Jack Fleetwood Trail, Fern Grotto, Eagle Heights Grasslands, an ancient forest hike up Koksilah River; and Cable Bay to Dodd Narrows.
You may also bike on the Trans-Canada Trail and elsewhere.  Margot will organize car-pooling and dinner preparation teams. Each hiker is responsible for their breakfast and lunch. ****************************************************************************
