​Heel your sole in the heart of Vancouver Island.

Does your sole need heeling? If you can muster the feet you may just meet Old Mother Hubbard.

To get there take Highway 4 / The Pacific Rim Highway west out of Port Alberni towards Tofino. After the second bridge, take your third right onto Central Lake Road approximately 5.3 miles. The Great Central Lake Shoe tree is on your left, a repository of shoes and artifacts for some 45 years. See if you can find the geocache "Good 4 your sole".

Do not litter.
