Very quiet trail, usually only see about 2 or 3 people each time I go there. My dog loves it and there's a few areas that are just a huge field so I usually bring the brisbee!

Can get pretty windy near the water some days (if you choose to add on Poor's farm road to your hike) but it's beautiful!

Great walk for humans and their furry companions! Suitable for older children. Close to the city. Costly Farm section not groomed, though the rest of the trails seem to be primarily gravel.

Beautiful scenery, not overly busy, quite ! Trails aren't "perfect" and you can definitely get muddy. My four legged friend and I had a blast though

I am surprised with 2 stars on these trails. Some of the trails are bike friendly, but most of them north of salt marsh are not. It is on leash for dogs & for difficulty I would say easy to moderate. Moderate portion is North of Salt Marsh trail. I really enjoy these trails, but they are located in my area. I would not drive from Halifax for this trail.

Great Sunday afternoon walk with the kids. A few hills but the path is crusher dust so easy to push a stroller on it. Some wildlife the day we were there lots of birds and a few deer. The trail travels through an open field then through some woods then opens up again with nice views of the Atlantic Ocean, Musquodoboit Harbour.

Unlike the atlantic view and the shearwater flyer trails this one isn't suitable for a road bike. I made it but it wasn't easy.
