Runners Trail

Vispine logo

 

The 17-km long Runners Trail follows a historic, cross-Island, First Nations route. It is mostly a single-track trail with several sections following along old, grown-in logging roads.  It links the Tuck Lake Trail at Nadira Main near Francis Lake with the Alberni Inlet Trail near Headquarters Bay.  It includes one major bridge over Parsons Creek, and several smaller bridges.

North of Parsons Creek, the hiker can choose to take the trail (not maintained since 2019) or hike the relatively narrow, shaded Headquarters Road (former railway grade).
