Water Trail Notice: Field Work Completed

Field work has been completed on the latest water trail section from Truro west along the coast to Cape Chignecto and back toward Amherst (Fundy North). This dramatic coast is a unique geologic and tidal experience for paddlers. It must also be approached with caution and knowledge about the tides and currents.

This is a CKNS project funded by the NS Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage. This new water trail section documenting 25 launch sites will be on line sometime in 2017 at www.trails.gov.ns.ca. Another section was added to the web site last spring – Cape Breton North – giving details on 53 launch sites from Canso Causeway up to Cape North and down the Great Bras d’Or Channel.
