Mountain Biking Mercey River/Jakes Landing to Merrymakedge Beach

****   Add a review
#7 of 16 mountain bike trails in Nova Scotia
#8,701 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
