Kinsol Trestle

The most spectacular wooden rail trestle in Canada (or maybe the world) is the Kinsol trestle in the Cowichan Valley just south of Duncan on Vancouver Island. It was built in 1921 and is one of the largest and highest in the world. The Kinsol Trestle crosses the Koksilah River. At present a large debate is brewing over whether the Kinsol Trestle should be restored or replaced as it is part of the Trans Canada Trail system. I think that it should be restored as this trestle has a history that can’t be matched. More information is available at Save The Kinsol Trestle
