The Friends of Rails to Trails Vancouver Island and Vancouver Island Trail Association are hosting a hike and bike event this Saturday to discuss the future of the E&N rail corridor and learn more about what Cowichan Valley candidates running in the election think should be done.
The event will take place at Shawnigan Wharf Park from 11 am to 1 pm where people can learn more about the opportunities that having a trail from Colwood to Courtenay would represent.
Information will also be available about the ownership of the old E&N corridor and how people can turn a disused rail into a vibrant commuting corridor and tourist attraction.
A hike or bike will then take place on the Kinsol Trestle Trail, approximately 8.7 km from the park.
This is an important opportunity for community members along the corridor to learn more and express their support. Free drinks, music, and prizes will be available.
