Kentville Trail System

In 1998, a major project was undertaken by the town, to add a wonderful new type of recreational amenity to its already impressive roster of facilities. This was a trail system, 7 kilometers long, and stretching from the Village of New Minas in the east, to the community of Coldbrook, in the west. This trail was laid on the former railway bed and offers cyclists, walkers, runners and skiers a variety of landscape ranging from wetlands, dykes, pastures and hardwood forests, to downtown businesses, to ball parks, golf courses, and residential. A bird sanctuary on the far western end of the trail offers glimpses of species in their natural habitat.
