This trail makes a great ride when your wanting to pound on some up hill mileage, if your riding from Kent Road up. If your riding from the windmills down it's a fun fast down hill.

Access Info

To ride up hill, park at one of the Cobequid Trail Parking lots, ride up Kent Road in Lower Truro. When you run out of pavement then your on the trail. To ride down hill, park somewhere in the Truro Power Center then ride up Tower Road till it turns to dirt, the fun starts around the 3rd wind mill.
