One Spot Trail
One Spot Trail
Located North West of Courtenay, One Spot Trail is a 2nd growth forest containing a variety of tree types. A large variety of wildlife can often be found including black tailed deer, woodpeckers, wrens, chickadees, and aquatic life.
This trail is located along the former main line railway grade, and is shared by hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders. It is named after the first locomotive to work on the grade, the “One Spot”, a wood burning Baldwin engine built in 1909.
This trail is an easy to moderate 8 km trail that has mostly dirt surfaces with some sections of packed gravel.
There are three completed sections of One Spot Trail
- Tsolum South – A continuous 8.5 km stretch of trail starting just south of Cessford Road and running continuously to Todd Road just south of the Tsolum River.
- Tsolum North – A continuous five km stretch of trail beginning on the main trail of Tsolum Spirit Park and continuing to Spike Road
- Macauley Road – There is a four km section of trail accessed off Macauley Road in Black Creek. The trail runs south and almost connects with Hamm Road
Due to its proximity to local working farms, One Spot Trial is an On-Leash trail. Please ensure your pets are leashed at all times.
One Spot trail can be accessed from several locations including Condensory, Piercy, Burns, Pindar, Dove Creek, Brazier, Orr, Fair, and Todd Roads.
