From Dartmouth follow Highway 107 and then Highway 7 to Musquodobit Harbour. Turn left off Highway 7 just beyond the Musquodoboit Harbour Railroad Museum and Tourist Bureau onto Highway 357. Continue along the 357 to Park Road. Turn right and proceed to the Trailhead on your left.
The Rail Trail, as the name suggests, is an abandoned rail corridor where the famed "Blueberry Express" used to run. The train was so named because the story goes that it ran so slowly that one could jump off, pick some blueberries and then hop back on!! Today it is a 15 km recreational trail between the Musquodoboit Harbour Railway Museum and Gibraltar rock.
For those of you that are little more energetic and love the "back-country" then the Trailway offers it all with five wilderness trail loops. Each of these is described below. The detailed trailway maps are viewable here and can be downloaded in pdf format. In season, brochures with detailed maps are available at the trailheads and various locations throughout Musqquodoboit Harbour.
