Province to Restore Over 45 Trails Damaged in July Floods

Includes full list of trails

Trails in Nova Scotia that were damaged in the July floods play an important role in the daily lives of Nova Scotians.

The Province is investing $5 million to fix them.

“Trails across the province help us get out into nature, connect with friends, keep active and promote positive mental health. We all want the trails we rely on to be fixed,” said Service Nova Scotia Minister Colton LeBlanc. “Non-profit trail organizations know these trails best, and many have already begun the work to repair them. We’ll reimburse them for the damage already fixed and use this funding to help others begin repairs.”

Non-profit organization NS Trails will be helping groups access the funding, which will be used to pay contractors to repair trails and reimburse community groups for work they have already completed.

More than 45 trails, all located on provincial government land in Annapolis, Colchester, Guysborough, Pictou, Queens and other counties, will be repaired. More trails could be added if additional damage is identified.

NS Trails greatly appreciates the government’s support for trails and for the dedicated volunteers who work so hard to maintain them.Heather Stilwell, Executive Director, NS Trails
