Terrific conditions on Mount Tzouhalem lately with lots of work by the CTSS and Municipality of North Cowichan to improve your mountain experience.
Have you hiked Awesome Trail yet? A fun trail that traverses and climbs along the bluffs overlooking Bird’s Eye Cove and onwards to the summit. The trail is accessed from either Nevilane Road or Shorepine Road (off Genoa Bay Rd)
If taking the Shorepine road route be sure to stop at Maple Bay Marina for your pre or post hike meal. I’m told they even have maps for the route there.
