The Courtenay River starts where the Puntledge and Tsolumn end and form this short stretch of river.
In this section there are a couple of quite popular simming spots! The first is at Lewis Park with easy access down a flight of stairs, and the second involves a 10-15 minute walk right to the head of the Courtenay River! More photos will be available soon, but for now here is a map for these two popular locations!
Tsolumn / Puntledge
(Head of the Courtenay River). This is where the Tsolumn and Puntledge Rivers end and form the start of the Courtenay River.
