The Doumont area is actually a large collection of trails that begin at the end of Doumont Road. From here you can hook into other trails and logging roads that end up on Mount Benson to the south or Lantzville foothills to the north. They can be a bit confusing so I recommend riding or running with someone who knows the trails well for the first time or take a map with you. Phil makes an amazing Doumont map and keeps it updated. You can get one of those here http://www.island.net/~pmcgarri/.
Directions to Trailhead
Drive to the end of Doumont Road in Nanaimo. You can get there by turning off the north end of Jingle Pot Road near the Nanaimo Parkway or by taking Biggs road. Get to Biggs by driving to Metral Road near Staples and Home Depot and continuing along Metral. Turn right onto Biggs Road at the Pleasant Valley activity centre and continue past the Black Bear Pub up to Doumont Road. Turn right up the hill onto Doumont Road. Any of the gates or trailheads along the way up the hill are good access to the trails in the area.
