Trans Canada Trail

Trans Canada Trail: White Pine Trail

This section of the Trans Canada Trail runs from Spruston Road to Timberland Lake. 

The trail is half single track near the Spruston Road end, then turns into logging road. It's well signed. Some of the signs can be tough to see in the trees though so keep a lookout at logging road forks to make sure you are the right track. 

Note: There is no bridge over the Nanaimo River at this time. 

Check out the White Pine Trail on the Vancouver Island Trails Map.

Trans Canada Trail: Haslem Creek to Christie Falls

A 3.8 km hike from Haslem Creek to Christie Falls along the Trans Canada Trail. 

The official start to this part is at the entrance to the Haslem Creek trail but you can drive a kilometre south along rough logging roads and start hiking there. The route passes under the power lines and into the bush. You can drive in a truck to 1.5 km south of the Haslem Creek trailhead. The road isn't very exciting to walk on. 

This trail is on the Trackr Map.

Pipeline Trail: Extension to Nanaimo River Road

This section of the Trans Canada trail runs along a pipeline access road from Extension Road to Nanaimo River Road. 

You can hike the other section of this trail over to the Abyss trails and Harewood Mines Road or hike this direction to Nanaimo River Road. Hiking towards the river ends at the river as there isn't a bridge yet. 

Follow the Nanaimo River Road to Nanaimo River section of the trail to get down to the river. 

This trail is on the Trackr Map.

Pipeline Trail: Nanaimo River Road to Nanaimo River

This short trail from Nanaimo River Road to the Nanaimo River is part of the Trans Canada Trail. It's a small part of the trails that run from the Departure Bay Ferry in Nanaimo to Kilometer 0 in Victoria. Not all the sections are complete. 

This great little trail winds it's way from Nanaimo River Road through double- and single-track trail down to the Nanaimo River. The trail should cross the river with a proposed bridge eventually.
