Outdoor Opportunities Await on Halifax to Lunenburg Trail
Destination Trail to Stretch 109km
January 17, 2014 - St. Margaret’s Bay, NS
Nova Scotia is upgrading, unifying and branding seven of its trails as a new outdoor adventure tourism product: a continuous 109km hiking and cycling route from Halifax to Lunenburg. The destination trail will be promoted as a new way for visitors to experience two of the province’s most popular destinations—and all the scenic communities in between.
Representatives from each of the seven trail systems have formed the Halifax to Lunenburg Steering Committee to spearhead the project, which includes the development of a trail brand, wayfinding signs, information kiosks, improved access points, amenity and rest areas and a mobile-compatible website. The committee is collaborating with communities along the trail corridor and using local suppliers for goods and services related to the project.
January 8, 2014 - The Nova Scotia Trails Federation (NS Trails), as the recognized agent for the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) in Nova Scotia, applauds the Federal Government’s announcement of up to $25 million in funding to support the connection of the TCT from coast to coast to coast by 2017, in time for the 150th anniversary of confederation.
“This is particularly great news for NS Trails and our TCT partners here in Nova Scotia,” said Blaise MacEachern, Chair of the NS Trails TCT Committee. “In Nova Scotia, we are just over 42 per cent connected, while nationally the trail is 72 per cent complete,’’ added MacEachern.
