The Harvest Moon Trail begins 5 kilometres away from here, in the quaint seaside town of Annapolis Royal, steeped in heritage and tradition; home to the first European Settlement in North America, the award-winning Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens and Fort Anne National Historic Site. As you travel from Annapolis Royal along the Annapolis River you will pass over two iconic railway bridges and travel through farmers’ fields, apple orchards and the picturesque towns of Berwick, Kentville and Wolfville. The trail ends in the Landscape of Grand Pré UNESCO World Heritage Site, the iconic place of remembrance of the Acadians. The 13 square-kilometre (5 mi²) site includes acres of tended farmland that pay homage to the dyke system first built by 17th century Acadian settlers on land reclaimed from the sea. The area is also the scenic setting for American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s narrative poem Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie.
The South Shore Annapolis Valley Recreational Trail Association is a non-profit, incorporated, volunteer-supported association. It's a Trail that can lead you to the South Shore, if you dare. In any case, the Trail is connecting to the Trans-Canada trail (Harvest Moon Trail) and from Nictaux to Springfield up to Lunenburg County !
