Our Trail Systems



A few years ago Martin retired as a front-line paramedic/EMD after 35 years of service in his profession. However he was not ready to slow down and wanted to take on a project that would keep him physically fit with a little adventure but not be expensive. So he and his wife started to walk the trails around Lunenburg County. Later that list included Queens County and HRM. Now it includes Shelburne County. South Shore Trail Book Here is a brief report of their trail adventures between April 2017 and October 2019 as put together by friend Eric Hustvedt. Hope you enjoy and maybe you will try one of the great trails around MODL or beyond.

Martin has produced a downloadable eBook. This eBook is based on Facebook posts from those trail adventures between April 2017 and October 2019. First off most of the trails that we have travelled are built or located on the former railway beds that once hosted a vibrant railway. To those persons who had the foresight and saw the value in preserving these right-of-ways for future generations, we say “thank-you”. All of these “rails to trails” are level surfaces and can be enjoyed by any walker. Some of these trails we have travelled more than once.
