This is a nice pleasant, easy walk for all types of walkers! Some nice views of Halifax on route
Great for a leisurely ramble.

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.

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.

A small trail system great for a quick getaway, or a popular stop to bird watch.

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...
