Under construction in Victoria BC – The Esquimalt and Nanaimo (E&N) Rail Trail – Humpback Connector

by hwilde on September 18, 2012

Presently under construction, the E&N Rail Trail – Humpback Connector will provide cyclists and other users with an excellent commuter path connecting the municipalities of Victoria, Esquimalt, View Royal and Langford.  This ambitious plan is yet another example of environmentally sound planning.

The existing E&N rail corridor offers a meandering route through diverse settings and connects with the already popular and well-used Galloping Goose Trail.  When the trail is complete it will join the Trans Canada Trail near Humpback Road in Langford.

During construction, you can find updates and closure advisories here.  At completion, the trail will stretch from the Johnson Street Bridge to Humpback Road, a distance of 17 kilometres.

This regional park will connect the communities through which it travels, allowing commuters an environmentally friendly option to driving to work, providing fresh air and exercise and saving them money too!  No doubt the trail will also be enjoyed for recreational purposes as well.  Initiatives like these are among the many things that make living in Victoria so awesome!



Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
