Walking to Annapolis Royal – Arrival

Moschelle to Annapolis Royal

This is it…we’ve walked the whole way from Bridgetown to Annapolis Royal following on the old rail way bed – Yeah!  This last section (or first if you begin in Annapolis Royal)  begins where the trail crosses the road that the 74th Crusaders, a motorcycle club, use to go to their camp.

This link in the trail is one of the most overgrown and shady – a fine thing on a hot August day.

It passes a dyked marsh still used  as pasture land today, an un-named creek (home to ducks and beaver), and enters the town of Annapolis Royal perimeter.

The town of Annapolis Royal has chosen to make the section of the rail bed that crosses the town accessible to non-motorized traffic only.  This has   dramatically changed the look and experience you will see/have on the trail.

Although the trail actually crosses town and continues, a good place to end this town to town trek is by the old railway station where there is parking. Parking is also possible on the Historic Gardens overflow parking which adjoins the  trail.  AR rtot entrance_7237 cv1
