North Granite Ridge Trail is a backcountry trail starting at the end of Gibraltar Rock Loop along the Musquodoboit Trailway near Halifax, Nova Scotia. Given the length, steep elevation gains, and backcountry nature of the trail, it is not wheelchair or stroller friendly. The trail features trail markers, kilometer markers, maps at either end of the backcountry trail, and is best used from April to October, when little to no snow is present. The end of the trail loops back onto the Musquodoboit Trailway and back to the parking lot, and also connects onto South Granite Ridge Trail. Parking Information: Best parking is at the Musquodoboit Trailway parking lot along Highway 357.

Excellent trail, did it in conjunction with the short but equally beautiful Gibraltar Rock Trail. It's a tough trail due to it's length and also the 7km hike back to the car on the Musquodoboit Trailway is a bit of a slog. The entire loop took me about 5 1/2 hours with a stop for a quick lunch halfway thru.
