Walk this on a fairly regular basis. Dog loves it. Peaceful with beautiful scenery

Comes close to the highway which ruins the quietness of an otherwise pleasant walk.

amazing view. bring a beer to the top to enjoy the hard work. I suggest going up and down the same side. the windy road back down is easier but feels like it takes forever and not scenic at all.

a great spot to walk and see some historic forts, monuments etc. not overly challenging and good for running

Amazing views! Great for snowshoeing or cross country skiing.

bumped into this gem of a trail while hunting for some geocaches! I love these urban parks. beautiful!

Beautiful trail - amazing for snowshoeing and a somewhat challenging hike. Entire loop is 10k.

there are two ways to enter this trail, you can enter at the sign on shore drive or take a few side streets up the hill and get in by a sign there at a small dead-end road branching off the street, there are usually cars here so it makes it easier to find. this entryway is best for short trips just to see the view. before you get to the view there is a small path that goes down beneath the cliff that leads into a more open space with the best view of bedford. highly recommend going down this path

Very easy with wide paths. Nice waterfall too.

Well marked trail. Nice mix of terrains too. It can get a bit swampy in the lower parts.

Love bringing my dog here. Plenty of little areas to explore plus swimming in the summer. I stay away from the human beach.

What a hoot ! Have you ever played 'snakes and ladders' ? The park keepers certainly have, the trail system is based on a paved path at the base of canyon with multiple sets of stairs going up the edges. Really cool. One set of steps called 'Jacob's Ladder' is outrageously long. Then there are waterfalls (many). For those of you who have read my other reviews you know I like to combine food, challenges and waterfalls. The food this time was a little spot in Truro called Bistro 22. The challenge was the stairs (even tired out my extremely fit wife). The Waterfalls, many and strongly visual. Enjoy !

I walk this trail every weekday morning with a group of men and it is perfect for our group. The trails are kept in excellent shape and better yet the park keepers are a very friendly lot. We walk for an hour or so, then it is off to Tim's for social time. This fall there was a concerted effort to make the trails free of obstacles. So it should be quite ideal for skiing if we get snow that stays.

This is a great place for a pleasant walk. And the view...one of the best views of Downtown Halifax. The trail follows the harbor from start to finish. For a stretch the trail runs alongside an adjacent railroad track. Fortunately the trail planners built sturdy wood fences wherever the rail line and walking trail cross. With only one elevation change, the trails weaves and bobs through low vegetation, giving you a pleasant and short walk.

Very easy walk lots of places to sit and rest. Shops al alongside. Not the greatest place to take a dog unless well trained and very social.

So pretty. Lots of little offshoot paths for great photo ops.

Ocean view was great lots of frogs and birds.

Great views, and a thrilling ascent. I wish I was back there.

Good any time of the year


One of my favorite!
