History

The One Spot Trail is located primarily along the former railway grade of the Comox Logging & Railway Company. The trail is named after the first locomotive the work on the grade, the “One-Spot”. It was a wood burning Baldwin engine, built in 1909.

The Ministry of Transportation (MOT) now owns the grade which extends from the City of Courtenay to Endall Road. MOT granted the regional district a licence of occupation for the grade between Condensory Road and the Tsolum River. With much help from the Comox Valley Land Trust, the Back Country Horsemen of BC and the Comox Valley Naturalists the CVRD officially opened the trail the fall of 2005.
