      A shared use trail network with a mix of singletrack and doubletrack. There's not a lot of elevation change but there's lots of punchy ups and downs. The Archery Club Loop is used by the local archery club as an outdoor shooting course, with events held a few times a year.

      This site is maintained by the Regional Municipality of Windsor/West Hants. Please note that the trails at Irishmans Road are shared use and part of the land is leased by the Glooscap Heritage Archers Association.  When using the trails (hiking, biking, archery, horseback riding, etc.), please be aware of other users; slow down and use caution around corners and hills to ensure safety for everyone. 
       
      Additionally, all users MUST stay on the trail system that has been constructed.  No one is permitted to create new trails or technical trail features (such as jumps) without permission and direction from the Municipality.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
