Mahone Bay is another popular destination in the Halifax-Lunenburg corridor. We’ve mapped out a wonderful 10k coastal run on quiet roads, with an option to loop back on a section of the Bay-to-Bay trail.
The coastal route starts in Mahone Bay and follows Rt. 3/Edgewater St. north for 1 km. Then, turn RIGHT onto Oakland Rd., a quiet road with nice views of Mahone Harbour. Follow for 2 km to Hansons Cove and another 1.5 km to Hirtle Cove. For the return, retrace your steps OR take Sleepy Hollow Rd. north for 0.5 km to the Bay-to-Bay Trail. Turn left on this well-marked gravel bike path, and follow for 3.3 km to the intersection with Clearland Rd., rejoining the main road back to Mahone Bay.
Add-On: More km on the 10 km Bay-to-Bay Trail, heading in either direction.
- 9.5 km (6 miles) loop
- Mahone Bay
