Halifax, Nova Scotia

Chain of Lakes Trail

Source: Halifax Metro

This is the longest off-road trail in the greater Halifax area. Starting at the Atlantic Superstore Superstore on Joseph Howe Drive in the northwestern edge of town, the paved trail goes for 7.3 km (4.5 miles) to Lakeside. The trail is quite scenic, passing by five lakes.

The Chain of Lakes Trail is part of a larger system. At the Lakeside terminus, one can connect to the “BLT” Trail, which is unpaved but continues through Beechville, Lakeside, and Timberlea for 13 km. From the end of the BLT Trail, connect to the spectacular St. Margarets Bay Trail, which continues for 32 km, unpaved, from Hubley to Hubbards. There are wonderful water views much of the way along this trail. It’s worth a destination run (or bike ride).
