      A complex network of multi-use trails within and in the vicinity of Thetis Lake Regional Park. Single track, double track, fire roads, and roughed-in routes. The best trails are gnarly, old school XC, with rolling flow in classic Vancouver Island hillocky terrain. Some trails are established CRD trails, while others are fresh builds. Still lots to explore.
