Trips by Tran­sit’s tran­sit trip picks

The Coast - - OFF CAMPUS -

Or­ga­niz­ers Mered­ith Bald­win and Cameron Ed­wards couldn’t pick just one of their favourite bus routes, so we’re list­ing their picks along with a cou­ple of our choice tran­sit treks, too.

Route 20: Pur­cell’s Cove Back­lands

Bald­win says the Pur­cell’s Back­lands are prob­a­bly her favourite spot in all of HRM: “I’ve seen deer and beavers there.”

Alder­ney Ferry: Down­town Dartmouth

“Ev­ery time of year it’s very pretty, and it’s just nice to get over to Dartmouth,” says Ed­wards. “There’s some re­ally nice cafes, shops and lo­cal com­mu­nity stuff go­ing on.”

Route 80/81: Hem­lock Ravine

This com­pact slice of wilder­ness fea­tures enough wind­ing trails to pleas­antly fill an af­ter­noon, with stun­ning vis­tas of Bed­ford Basin and sev­eral strands of old-growth trees (like, 1780s old).

Route 60: Fish­er­man’s Cove

Route 60 un­spools along East­ern Pas­sage, tak­ing you to MacCor­ma­cks Beach Pro­vin­cial Park and the nearby Fish­er­man’s Cove—a re­stored fish­ing com­mu­nity filled with quaint, colour­ful shops.
