Atlantic waters and shallow wetlands, walking along the Salt Marsh Trail makes you feel like you’re walking on water!


Departing your local accommodator or cruise dock we'll briefly tour while driving through Historic Halifax and Dartmouth for our first stop in either Eastern Passage or Cole Harbor.The first rail trail starts at Department of National Defence Shearwater (passing by the Aviation Museum) and travels out to join the Salt Marsh Trail 

Next and located in Cole Harbour (home of hockey's Sidney Crosby!) the Formally Trans-Atlantic Musquodoboit rail bed, crossing wetlands via a long causeway and four bridges! offering wonderful views, interpretive signage, and abundant wildlife. With plenty of benches along the way to sit and enjoy the scenery, it’s easy to see why the Salt Marsh Trail is one of the best bird-watching destinations in the region. For some people, a short walk (1.0 km) out to the first bridge and back, will be a great adventure. You will get to see the great salt marsh, smell the coastal air and view some beautiful panoramas. Others that seek more of a challenge can make the round trip of 13 km or the one-way trip of 6.5 km.   The trail is very level and the surface is a mix of crusher dust and gravel. There are markers for every kilometre of this trail to help you keep track of how far you have travelled.
