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.
