Trip report by BestHike editor Rick McCharles.
A surprisingly rugged and interesting 5km day hike connects the town of Parksville with Top Bridge.
It’s official name is the Top Bridge Regional Trail.
In good weather, the bridge is a popular swimming spot.

If you have time, I’d strongly recommend continuing past the bridge on to the Englishman River Trail.
