New signs identify Chain of Lakes Trail as Blue Route

Bicycle Nova Scotia and the Halifax Regional Municipality are proud to announce that the Chain of Lakes Trail has been officially designated as Blue Route.

The Chain of Lakes Trail connects the end of the BLT Trail in Beechville to Joseph Howe Drive in Halifax. It is the longest paved trail in Halifax at 7.km and makes up part of the Rum Runners Trail. New signs have been erected as part of Halifax’s active transportation wayfinding signage project. The new signs use the Bicycle Wayfinding Guide produced by BNS and in addition to identifying the network as part of the Blue Route, also points out key destinations along the trail.

With this new segment, you can now travel on the Blue Route traffic free from the edge of the Halifax peninsula into Lunenburg. Bicycle Nova Scotia continues to work with Halifax Regional Municipality on connecting the Blue Route into Halifax to create a province-wide network of connected cycling infrastructure.
