This is primarily the 'A Ferry Sails Through' 600 route, but instead of going south of the Malahat, it goes west to Lake Cowichan.

The start in Nanaimo allows you to pass that start point at 366 km, Tim Hortons Brooks Landing.  Departure Bay Motel is closest, but Ramada is also just one block off route.

Alternate start available--contact organizer to discuss options.

  • Cedar control--turn onto gravel road at top of dip--don't go down the hill! (Looks like a driveway 2788
  • Nanoose control--across road from 1326 Marina Way--don't go down the hill!
  • Cumberland--last services close at 11pm, and next opportunity is Qualcum Beach (24hr).  Plan ahead before leaving Courtenay (17th at Cliffe last chance Petrocan/McDonalds).
  • km 455.6. Cowichan Valley Trail past Greendale Rd has large yellow signs in middle at all road crossings, and large rocks to each side.  Keep head up!
  • km 520 Koksilah Forest Service Rd is 1.6km of gravel, mostly downhill.  Go slowly!
