Walking, Hiking and Biking Trails

Walking, Hiking and Biking Trails in the Comox Valley

The Comox Valley is paradise to those who love to be outdoors! We have networks of trails everywhere.  Just a 5-minute walk south of this property is a network of trails that winds all the way to Union Bay.  In nearby Royston you will find the Trent River trail network.  A 10-minute drive north to Millard Road connects you with the traild through Millard Creek area and on to the Riverway trail that winds right to downtown.  Puntledge Park is also very accessible just a short drive from downtown Courtenay. The interactive Google Map below will help you plan your walks or runs. Another very handy website is Active Comox Valley, offering maps to more than 24 local trails and parks. Dogs should be on leash and poop should be scooped (in case you have forgotten, we have a supply of poop-scoop bags available). Here are handy links to the Active Comox Valley pamphlets:
