Continuation of the Salt trail. Amazing with cycling!

Being a runner, I do this the first loop 1-2 times a year. A challenging course which pushes the limits of my abilities. When you do get to one of the look-offs, the views are breath-taking. Plan at least 3-4 hours if you plan to walk the first loop.

Only did first loop. with Megan, Holly and BobbySue

Nice short rugged hike. The the orange flagging at the lower trailhead on Shore Drive now leads down to Admiral's Cove on the Basin with some nice rocky perches to look across the Basin. The uphill trail is harder to spot. The upper trailhead offf Snowy Owl has more parking spots. It seems to get a fair bit of night time use by teenager party lovers so the first lookoff at Eagle's Nest has a lot of grafitti and garbage. This tapers off and the rest of the trail was unspoiled - very little garbage.

Great hike could be better marked from hwy as it looks like somebody’s driveway at first. View from the top is beautiful. Easy hike if for your fur baby’s also. Would be amazing in the fall colours time.

Heard about and saw signs for the trail. Finally tried it last Tuesday, was not expecting such an amazing trail! Certainly recommend.

The best trail I’ve been on. It’s a hard days hike to finish this in one day. I hike this trail 2-3 times a year in winter as well as the summer. I often camp one night at the half way point.

Great trail if you do a shorter loop for dogs and day hikes as well.

Wicked hike. Moderate to difficult terrain. Lots of steep climbs on a well-marked trail. Took us about two hours at a relatively quick pace and two short breaks.

Great winter hike with stunning view! Made me say “wow” out loud coming out of the trees.

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

Could be marked a little better. Fortunately there was a pretty freshly laid snowmobile trail there for me to follow. Other than that, fantastic. Another gem in the heart of Nova Scotia.

Did this trail about 3 weeks ago. Excellent trail with gorgeous views of the fall colors. Signage could be a little better.

Very steep incline at the bottom that lasts until you're about 1/3rd of the way up, but then it levels out and is a very pleasant hike to the top. Beautiful views - especially during the fall!

Great little trail with a spectacular view at the top. You can see confederation Bridge and Prince Edward Island from the top view. Steep up hill climb via an old logging road. There are direction signs but they are faded . Great October hike when the leaves are the most colourful.

The view alone is worth the climb. I would agree that it's a moderate trail. Well marked. we hiked over to the top of the ski Hill which was also a nice hike.
