About Us

The Halifax North West Trails Association  is one of many volunteer community trail groups in HRM. Our area includes Fairview, Clayton Park, Rockingham and Bedford South as well as the Blue Mountain - Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area.  Our trails offer the casual urban walker or the experienced wilderness hiker a variety of  outdoor experiences. Many of the trails pass through historic areas connected with the development of Halifax since 1749 and pass near brooks, wetlands and woodlands where flora and fauna abound.

Trails Connect Neighbourhoods Walking is a beneficial activity, improving our physical, mental and social health. The setting is never static, the costs are minimal and age is no limitation. Children and youth and their families can benefit from outdoor learning activities. With accumulated knowledge and the love of nature we can be better stewards of our environment. Our trails are a vibrant part of our multicultural communities. Halifax North West Trails Association (HNWTA) invites you to be a part of the green force committed to leaving a legacy.
