Mountain Biking Mercey River/Jakes Landing to Merrymakedge Beach

****   Add a review
#9 of 16 mountain bike trails in Nova Scotia
#5,511 in the world

The trail crosses over a floating bridge which moves back and forth. There are signs that tell you to walk across (and I did) but it would have been kind of fun to ride on that thing. Once on the trail, it is mostly flat with a few boardwalk areas thrown in. The surface is mostly trail about 3 feet wide with pea gravel over the top to help it drain. There are a few roots, but it is mostly a scenic trail. There won't be of much interest to hard core riders, but is a great beginner / family trail

    I was here on business and had a little free time, so I went to this park. They had rentals and you could leave right from there. The bikes were Ghost hardtails, which I had never ridden before, but I was impressed. The area had gotten a lot of rain, but the people told me they had created the trails with the rain in mind. Sure enough they were mostly dry. I was glad I took an hour and a half and went!
