Entrance can also be gained from the opposite end, at the Lawrencetown Community Centre.   I’d rate this trail as easy (find other…

Bring Your Bike to Big Tancook

Bring Your Bike to Big Tancook

One of the best things about bringing your  bike over to Big Tancook Island is -you get to the food first. You can roll right off the ferry and pump you legs up the hill past the couples, the families and the old folks with walkers and canes. I jest,of course.
