Monday was an overcast and cool day but we still got out of the house for a walk. The St. Margaret’s Bay Trail is long and goes throughout the area (including along the edge of Jerry Lawrence park). It is also the trans canada trail so is the old rail bed. I’m sure there are plenty of trail heads but we parked at the Bike and Bean, a cafe and bike rental spot in the old French Village Train Station.
The boys were thrilled that there is an actual train at the old station.
The trail is wide and heavily used, especially by bicycles. It is great to have an easy hike five minutes away that makes you feel like you are far away from it all and where I don’t have to worry about traffic. It was a chilly day but the boys enjoyed the walk. Behind them is Mill Lake. Needless to say, we will be using this trail again and again!
