Google: Your new bookmarks manager is a bulky, awkward pig. I hate it. I do NOT work well with tiles because they are bulky and take up way too much screen real estate to be efficient. Please, please give a view option for a list again.

How to get to the Koksilah River Ancient Forest between Shawnigan Lake and Port Renfrew, BC

Directions coming from Victoria, BC. – Drive time approx. 1 hour 15 min

Take Highway #1 up and over the Malahat
At the second set of lights in Mill Bay make a LEFT onto Shawnigan Lake Rd.
Once you reach the town of Shawnigan Lake, turn RIGHT at the 4 way intersection.
Soon afterwards you will pass Mason’s Store. Reset your trip meter here and from this point it is 15.5km of driving to the trailhead.
Stay on the main road and eventually it turns into Port Renfrew Rd.
You will pass the Kinsol Trestle and also the Koksilah Provincial Campground.
Continue on and eventually you cross a yellow bridge at base of Kapoor Hill.
At the top of the hill the road makes a “Y”. Go RIGHT and park at the orange gate. The road has a large ditch dug through it only a few hundred feet up.
Start from this gate and follow the hiking guide directions.

Once you have followed the driving directions and arrived, use these instructions to access the area.

Total walking distance 1.85 km to the trees. Starting at the orange gate, follow the road/motorbike trail. Look for blue “TRAIL” tape, especially at the trail intersections. You will pass two motorbike side trails on the right, then a Y junction, and you will take the right leg.
After 500 metres (I think this is longer than 500m) along the motorbike trail take the narrow side trail on the right-an alder is marked with cuts there (and a couple of alders along this trail after a short distance are marked as well). Look for blue tape.
(If you go past the entrance you will go up a long hill, still on the motorbike trail. If you are still on an obvious motorbike trail after passing a side trail to the right that looks like a footpath, you missed it.)
After about another 400 m, there is another, steep, side trail off to the right into a grove of big trees-the trees are obvious from the main trail.
These are nice, but the big trees are another 200 m down the main foot trail. 
This goes down to the edge of the Koksilah River.

New for 2015-The Sayward Lake Chain Canoe Tour: Vancouver Island's answer to the Bowron Lakes.

This circuit has beautiful lakes and interesting protages. We are open to pre-reservations for the 2015 season. Tentative dates are June 19-23, 2014 and August 7-11, 2015.
