It was wet and cold when we visited the Kinsoll Trestle. The walk-way to the trestle was wide and the grade was almost flat so the 1.2 kilometer walk was easy. The trestle, the river , the surrounding rain-forest were all spectacular- loved it despite the rain !!

A large Trestle bridge with a great view of the river below. If you are a bicycler it would be a great place to go for a ride. I was there in Winter so maybe in summer there may be more pedestrians than a cyclist would like. Check it out. It is part of a large hiking area with another one 6 kms away that we did not hike to.

After a short walk, you arrive at the Kinsol Trestle, a replication of the railroad that once connected these two hills. It makes for lots of great pictures.

A tremendous hike! So beautiful!! It’s a about a kilometre from the parking lot, so it’s a bit of boot, especially with younger children. This free activity, puts you amongst the trees, you listen to the birds, the roar of the river below. It’s truly a wonderful spot to enjoy, probably about 15-20 minutes off of the Trans-Can, the Kinsol Trestle really allows you take in the beauty of British Columbia and Vancouver Island!!

I highly recommend visiting Kinsol Trestle! It's an incredible structure with a nice view that also leads to many beautiful walking/hiking trails. It's worth walking to the bottom of the trestle to get an entirely different perspective of the structure and then dip your toes in the clear and refreshing, emerald green river. There are a few outhouses available along the trail.

Fun place to take photos and spend a relaxing day. It is a bit of a walk from the parking to the trestle, but it's level and an even surface. Even better if you're able to walk down the trail to the river and put your feet in!
Don't forget your water bottle, I don't remember there being any access to drinking water. Highly recommend for a peaceful day trip.

The wooden bridge is really spectacular, worth the detour. It's a short 5-10 min walk from the parking lot to the bridge. However... the road to get to it is winding, dirt/gravel and longer than expected. But, worth the effort to go see!

Beautiful view…nice leisurely walk…just a gorgeous little trip. The walk would be easy for wheelchair etc. My mother with cane did just fine.

Some improvement could be needed for amenities but then that would require maitenance and staff as people would stay much longer !! Tables and bbq/fire pits, and easier access to the water, and cleared area for blankets etc waterside. But then may eliminate the tranquility. Cyclists really need to be neutered, as they are quite quick to pass and families very loud. Remember voices carry in the wilderness. Beautiful area nonetheless .
