Location[edit]

Koksilah River Park is located 4 km west of Shawnigan Lake on southern Vancouver Island.

Burnt Bridge[edit]

Burnt Bridge

A gated metal bridge runs over the Koksilah River. It is called Burnt Bridge because the original (built in 1865) was destroyed in a forest fire. Burnt Bridge has been rebuilt twice. Also crossing the Koksilah River is the Kinsol Trestle, just East of the park.
