Parks and Trails

Conveniently located in the Town of Port Hawkesbury, this wonderful system of all-season trails will appeal to both the avid and casual hiker.  Discover a wide variety of plants and wildlife as the 10-kilometre trail system winds its way through majestic hardwood stands, softwood forests and along gently flowing brooks and streams.  A series of rest areas inviting you to stop and enjoy the surrounding scenery can be found throughout the trail.

Parking is located at Grant's Pond, Crandall Road and the Recreation Grounds.  Look for the trail signs at these entry points - with helpful orientation signage featured along the trail system.

The Port Hawkesbury Trail System provides tremendous year-round experience for walkers, hikers, and cross-country skiers.  Dogs are welcome but must be leashed within 200 metres of the entrance/exit areas.  Please note that the trails are unsupervised and the Town of Port Hawkesbury assumes no responsibility for the safety of trail users. There is also an opportunity for those who are intersted in volunteering on tril development.  If this is something that maybe of interest, or to see the progress on our development, please visit the website at www.straitareatrails.com and sign up.
