Description & Services

Information This trail will re-create a trail link between the Centennial Trail in the Town of Bridgewater and the South Shore Annapolis Valley Trail in New Germany. The 3.5 km developed portion of this rail-trail travels, for the most part, along Wentzell Lake and the LaHave River. When the river is swollen, it’s easy to have a great view of the rushing water! There are a number of pairs of loons on the lake, and it’s only a short jaunt up to the Wentzell Lake Provincial Park. Ownership: Provincial Crown Land Trail Length: 3.5 km (7 km return) Managing Agency: LaHave River Trail Association
