In Victoria County, the 8.5km St Anns Bay Trail is open to hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, ATV riding and cross-country skiing. This trail climbs steadily to offer a spectacular view of St. Anns. Surrounded by ash, birch, beach, maple, pine, and spruce, you will have the opportunity to watch a brook run down between two mountains into the ocean. At 2.8 km, the ocean will be on your left hand side. The trail continues beside the ocean so be aware of erosion in certain areas. At 3.4 km, you will reach a lookoff point which offers a spectacular view of North River.

The trail ends at 4.2 km. At this point you can rest for a while before turning around and heading back to your car. On the way back the trail seems like a different one because you can have a better chance to see a great view of St. Anns Bay and surrounding mountains with farmhouses nested between them. This trail is most beautiful in the fall.

Directions: Take exit 12 on highway 105 and then take route #312 to Englishtown. Begin where pavement ends or drive in a bit. The trail begins where the road deteriorates beyond driving ability.

Overall, St Anns Bay Trail is the 6th most popular mountain bike trail of all 12 mountain biking rides in Nova Scotia.
