VISIT THE MUSQUODOBOIT TRAILWAY
The Musquodoboit Trailway offers over 41 Km of non-motorized, world class hiking opportunities for you and your family. The easy to walk Rail Trail will take you through the diverse, natural landscape that borders the Musquodoboit River and shelters scores of colourful birds, small mammals, and a treasure-trove of unique flora. The Trailway is an anchor for 26 kilometres of backcountry trails that wind along the granite ridges of the White Lake and Ship Harbour-Long Lake wilderness areas.
The Musquodoboit Trailway follows the old railbed, weaving between the river and towering cliffs. Backcountry wilderness loops off the main trail offer spectacular views of Musquodoboit Harbour, the Musquodoboit River and the White Lake and Ship Harbour/Long Lake wilderness areas.
