Located just 30 minutes from downtown Halifax, the St. Margaret’s Bay Area Trail is a 33km multi-use (walking, cycling, ATVing, horse-back riding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and skiing) recreational Trail with some of the most stunning elevated panoramic views of the St. Margaret’s Bay Area.
It’s one of the most scenic Trails you will find in Nova Scotia. The changing of the seasons brings new and exciting things to see. From the early morning mist rising over the Bay to the glow of the setting sun, this Trail is truly a nature and photography lovers dream.
