Dynamite Trail near Mahone Bay

Martins River Bridge - Dynamite Trail

Brilliant sunshine shone Sunday several winter weekends past, as a group walked the Dynamite Trail with the Scotian Hiker.  This section of the rails to trails system in Nova Scotia is particularly suited to easy walking.  It crosses several different types of habitat – forest, lake, marsh, inlet and town.  The bridges crossing the several brooks and river are especially neat. The bridge pictured above crosses Martins River and offered some great views.

Dotted along the trail are signs of agriculture such as wild apple trees.

There are few maps of this trail online.  A great map is located at Bikely.com, although we began some what farther east (see my map) at the end of the Chester Connection Trail and ended on the number 3 in Mahone Bay.

The holiday season has been especially busy and I hope to post regularly over the next few days (several days…week…).
