Cowichan River - Another good novice or intermediate run. A bit more difficult than the Sandy Pool to Vimy section. Rapids are a bit bigger and longer than that section. It's narrower, so there are less chances to avoid the rough stuff if that is paddler's intent. Easy access points are both in public parks, but does require a short walk/portage . Finding the take out may be a bit challenging from the river, so it's worth checking out the take out beach at Sandy Pool.
