Herbert River Trail
Saturday June 16, 2012 – Herbert River Trail. Patrick Kelly 472-2322 email@example.com will be leading this walk for the Nova Scotia Bird Society. This easy walk follows the rail bed of the former train line that ran from Windsor to Truro via Kennetcook. It runs along the Herbert River for a good part of its length. In addition to birds it is also a great walk for spotting floodplain vegetation. Meet at the Newport Rink parking lot at 9:00 a.m. Take Exit 5 from Highway 101 and follow Highway 14 east for about 10 km to the village of Brooklyn. At the cenotaph, keep left and follow Highway 14 north for just under 1 km. At the intersection (Petro-Canada station) Highway 14 turns right. Continue straight on Highway 215 (Note the YIELD sign. you do NOT have the right of way!) The rink is on the right as soon as you exit the intersection. Bring insect repellent. We should be done by lunch. Rain date Sunday, June 17.
