Explore the most popular wheelchair friendly trails near Halifax with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Perfect trail to use as alternative to urban hiking. Water views are very nice and historical significance to the area adds to appeal.

Beautiful location, especially in the early morning for the sunrise and seeing the cruise liners coming the Halifax port. Dog Friendly off leash before 9am I believe. Trails are well groomed and water view on three sides of the park.

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.

In my opinion this is more of a biking trail. All paved and well maintained. Not much in regards to scenery. A few major road crossings take away from something a hiker may want to experience. I rated this 3 stars as a hiker but would probably give it 5 as a biker.

Great place for a walk. Easy trails. Lots of squirrels and birds. Lots of places to stop. Great place to go during any season.

Great park at the end of the city. We walked from the cruise terminal, about 2K, and around the park. Even in the pouring rain there were joggers and folks walking dogs. Well marked paths. I was sorry we didn't have better weather.

Good park for dog owners, if you are not a dog owner, it will probably feel a little too busy. you can find a lot better trails 20min outside of the city.

Good dog walking park. Many friendly dogs and large grassy areas for them to chase each other and play. My dog loses his mine every time I tell him we are going to the park!

One of the all-time favourites in Halifax! If you visit Halifax you must walk through Point Pleasant Park, and if you live in Halifax and have never walked it then shame on you!! Easy well kept trails and beautiful views of Halifax Harbour and North West Arm. Lots of parking at two different entrances to the park(one near the water the other starts into the wooded part). Great family walk anytime of the year!!

This is a heavily used trail by runners, bikers, walkers, and dog walkers. There is a lesser known loop trail( Halifax Mainland Commons Marsh Trail) that branches off this trail that is a nice walk through the woods for an added 1-1.5km. I use this trail several times a week and enjoy the walk every time.

This trail is city asphalt and wooden boardwalk, from Sullivan's pond to the Mig Mag part clo. Straight level walking along the pond and mic Mac lakes. Lot's of bickers, skaters, bickers, ect....the northern portion along the top of the cove is equally as nice and easy to walk. We do each half on separate days , we park in the cove across from superstore...and go either north or south, south to Sullivan's pond and back, 45-60 minutes, north around the cove a little less. The cove park itself, 15 minutes..enjoy...
