    Lochside Trail

     We are very fortunate that this trail runs right through Cordova Bay and is great for walking or biking. This 29-kilometer multi-use trail stretches from Swartz Bay to Victoria, past beaches, farmland and wetlands, down country lanes and beside suburban backyards. The trail has a more civilized personality than its more rural cousin, the Galloping Goose Regional Trail. While some parts of the Lochside are off-road and others downright pastoral, in some places trail visitors must share paved or gravel public roads with motor vehicles and farm equipment. The trail surface is wide (3 to 6 metres) and mostly flat. For more information www.gallopinggoosetrail.com/pdf/lochside_trail_guide.pdf.
