What a beautiful Sunday for a hike. We did a short car shuttle from Providence Farm Store to our start on Khnippson Rd. I included Island Mountain Ramblers, Outdoor Club of Victoria, and the Cowichan Hikers.
13 people started the hike, and 10 completed. One hiker did not feel well and was having a tough time, so after discussion, three decided to go back. We could hear the Sea Lions at Cowichan Bay, and 7 eagles soaring above were a welcome sight.
The hike was approx 10km and 650m elevation gain.
A wonderful group of hikers, enjoying each other company.
