Af­ter years of plan­ning, col­lab­o­ra­tion, con­sul­ta­tions and trail build­ing, the Har­vest Moon Trail­way will of­fi­cially open this sum­mer.

The 117-kilo­me­tre trail con­nects the An­napo­lis Val­ley along the for­mer rail line, stretch­ing from the UNESCO World Her­itage Site of Grand Pré to An­napo­lis Royal.

“The Har­vest Moon Trail­way is a safe, multi-use ac­tive trans­porta­tion route that passes through pic­turesque com­mu­ni­ties of­fer­ing ac­cess to farm markets, winer­ies, craft bev­er­age pro­duc­ers, res­tau­rants, u- picks, accommodations and other busi­nesses,” said Beth Pat­tillo, chair­woman of the An­napo­lis Val­ley Trails Coali­tion.

“The trail­way aims to in­crease trail ac­tiv­ity, pro­mote ac­tive liv­ing, and grow eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties for com­mu­ni­ties along the cor­ri­dor.”

The Har­vest Moon Trail­way is cur­rently com­plete from Wolfville to Tup­perville, with the Tup­perville to An­napo­lis Royal sec­tion set for open­ing July 8. The re­main­ing sec­tion Wolfville to Grand Pré is sched­uled for open­ing on Aug. 19.
