Description & Services
Halifax North West Trails Association is a not-for-profit society whose objectives are to promote the creation, protection, and maintenance of trails in Halifax North West. HNWTA is one of many volunteer community trail groups in Halifax. Our area includes Fairview, Clayton Park, Rockingham and Bedford and we support the use of trails in this area, as well as the Blue Mountain - Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area. These trails offer the casual urban walker or the experienced wilderness hiker a variety of outdoor experiences.
