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.

The section of trail between Francis Lake and the site of former Franklin Camp B will be closed in the summer of 2020 because of active road building and logging on the north side of Darlington Lake.  During this time, walk out the Francis Lake access road and use Carmanah Main.
