Cy Jenkins Trail 3

Cy Jenkins Trail is near the east side of Glen Lake in Langford, BC. The one hundred and eighty five meter long trail connects southward from Glennan Road to the Galloping Goose Trail-Langford. It passes across the eighty five meter long boardwalk over Glen Lake and though a small section of Glen Cove Park. Glen Lake is part of the Colwood Creek Watershed and collects water from Humpback Reservoir and Irwin Ponds which are connected by Parkdale Creek. This watershed has an area of 1194 hectares including storm drains in the surrounded communities. Eventually the waters from Glen Lake reach the Salish Sea as the lake drains into Colwood Creek on the eastern shore. The lake has a surface area of about seventeen hectares and lies at an altitude of sixty-seven meters. The beach area is good launching personal watercraft like canoe, paddle boards and kayaks. There is an aeration system in the lake which helps support a healthy water quality for the small mouth bass, rainbow trout and cutthroat trout. The latter two species have been released into the lake since the nineteen eighties. Glen Lake Park, Irwin Park, City Center Park, Belmont Secondary School Green Space, Galloping Goose Trail-Langford, Langford Lake Park, Leigh Beach Park, Mount Wells Regional Park and Glen Cove Park are nearby.
