I hiked in Charles L. McDonald Sports Park a couple of weeks ago. With these chilly temperatures I better tell you all about it before the trails are covered in snow! Of course, this is actually a lovely little trail for a snowy hike, but if I wait too much longer my autumn photos will be old news.
Unless familiar with the area, this park is a hidden gem. The only reason I know about it is because of Michael Haynes’ book Trails of Halifax Regional Municipality. I did notice a sign for the park, but it was knocked down in the grass beside the road. Based on first impressions one might not think it, but these trails are really quite enjoyable, and very well maintained. Read the full posting here. Find a map and directions here.
