The historic Kinsol Trestle also known as the Koksilah River Trestle, is a wooden railway trestle located on Vancouver Island north of Shawnigan Lake in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.

Originally completed in 1920, the Kinsol Trestles dimensions measure 44 m (144 ft) high and 188 m (617 ft) long, making it the largest wooden trestle in the Commonwealth and one of the highest railway trestles in the world. A recent fundraising effort saw a full restoration completed in 2011 and the trestle now provides the link for the Trans Canada Trail and its many cyclists and hikers to cross the Koksilah River.
