In summer 2017, trail groups around Nova Scotia joined the country to celebrate Canada 150 and the connection of The Great Trail. Check out some highlights in the video below! A big thank you to Canadian Heritage and Trans Canada Trail for making this event possible!
It's time to celebrate!
2017 not only marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation, it's also the year we reach 100% national connection of the Trans Canada Trail. August 26 is a day to celebrate connection and to thank our generous, devoted and fun-loving volunteers, partners and donors for their hard work in connecting The Great Trail across Canada.
Here is the detailed list of events taking place across Nova Scotia:
On a Maritime morning of mist and fog, Trans Canada Trail celebrated the 100% connection milestone in Nova Scotia with approximately 100 enthusiastic trail users in attendance.
The event was held at the 1-km marker of the Salt Marsh Trail, a rail trail on Cole Harbour along the Atlantic Coast. Attendees were greeted at the trailhead by a young piper, who also provided a musical serenade for those on the guided trail walk that followed.
