Harvest Moon Trail in the Town of Wolfville: Important work will begin over coming days on the Harvest Moon trailhead and access to the trail will be closed to the public. Repairs to fix a sink hole, repair underground infrastructure, and raise the trail will be carried out. The Town apologizes in advance for any inconvenience as we work to ensure a safe and improved trail access point for all; the work will likely take around 2 weeks and further updates will be provided on progress.
The map below shows how you can safely access the trail both to the east and west of the closed access point. In addition, the intent is to expand and increase the number of parking spots along the North side of the area. This will involve a reduced number of parking spots being available while the work is completed.
Thank you for your patience as these improvements are made. Questions can be directed to the Town of Wolfville Director, Parks & Recreation, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cole Harbour Parks and Trails:
- Bissett Trail in Cole Harbour – Contractors will be on the new section of the Bissett Trail over the next week or so working on some drainage issues. The intent is to minimise water and gravel flowing over the trail or cutting into the trail sides. The impact on trail users will vary as the work progresses. Be aware and be safe.
- Salt Marsh Trail in Cole Harbour – The section of trail between the Bald Eagle and Ready Aye Ready bridges is rough but passable but will be difficult for those with mobility issues.
- Shearwater Flyer Trail in Cole Harbour – Repair work is ongoing to repair side of trail damage. Heavy equipment will be on site and the trail will close in sections between Caldwell/Hines intersection and Hines Road.
- Jersey Jack Trail in Cole Harbour – Sections of the trail near the shoreline of Cole Harbour has suffered serious damage from Dorian and subsequent storms. A section has been cordoned off due to severe subsidence into the harbour. In some places the shoreline has been eaten in by 3 to 4 meters. This dramatic damage may require CHPTA to re-position the trail further up slope.
