The Cobequid Eco-Trails Society, with the help of the Department of Environment and Labour, and some private landowners, has gotten funding and approval to begin developing a new eco-trail through the Cobequid Mountain’s highest point. The hiking trail will run over 40 kilometers and is expected to be open year round for hikers and snowshoers.
This will be the sixth hiking trail developed by the trail society. “Our province is blessed with pristine beauty and this trail will provide another opportunity to enjoy it,” said Minister of Environment and Labour, Mark Parent.
Nova Scotia has targeted to be one of the cleanest and most sustainable environments in the world by 2020. Preserving natural habitats and maintaining green spaces like in this project is expected to help them meet that goal.
