The Royston Cumberland Railway trail was our walk. This greenway was once very active transporting timber and coal from 1888 to the 1950s. Once the railroad tracks were removed, it was a Van West Logging road. Thanks to the Comox Valley Regional District, it was purchased in 2014 so that it could be maintained as a trail. Being a rail trail meant a fairly flat grade with easy terrain. I don't know if it was the cold morning temperatures or the fact that many of us have been walking regularly, but our brisk pace took us for a total of 8 k. That was 45 min. in one direction and 45 in the other. Usually our group averages at about 6 or 6.5 k. Thanks again to Bill for photos that you can view here.
