Description & Services
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
