Rails to Trails Valley Wide!
Soon to be officially opened, Harvest Moon Trailway will span 117 kms though the Annapolis Valley, connecting the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Grand Pre with the charming town of Annapolis Royal. The Grand Opening of the Tupperville-to Annapolis Royal section is scheduled for July 8, while August 19 marks the official opening of the Wolfville to Grand Pre portion. I’ve made it my mandate to commute via trail at least once a week this summer.
Kentville Rails to Trails
I hopped on my bike after work and headed down behind Memorial Park to connect with the trail going east towards Wolfville. The trail is pavement or crushed rock ,and Kentville Rec.keeps it trimmed and groomed pretty much year round.
The trail does require touring a bit of downtown Kentville, from behind the post office along Webster St. to Station Lane, and along Justice way to reconnect with the actual trail.
Interesting tidbit. There are two stations along the Kentville section of the trail that have tools in case your bike needs a repair-flat tire or some such minor annoyance. I love that idea although I am not sure I would be able to service my bike even with tools.
