Nov 27 hike is cancelled owing to weather

The planned hike from Herring Cove to Spryfield, along the trail route (partly existing trail, partly planned trail) is cancelled. The weather forecast is for solid rain or snow, which doesn’t sound pleasant! We also don’t want to damage any muddy trails.  Have a great weekend.

Trail building days – Thursdays, Saturdays, & Sundays

The Norrawarren trail is rolling along nicely thanks to the hard work of our volunteers. We’ve finished the first starter loop and are part way through the second. Once the ink is dry on the land use agreement from HRM we will begin the entrance trail to the Norrawarren trailhead. A Grand Opening is in sight!

Our trail building schedule for the next few weeks is Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings from 8:30am till around 12:30pm each day (with the exception of this Saturday). Come out for as much (or as short) a time as you are able. We meet at Norrawarren Drive. If we have to cancel because of weather we will send out an email to those who’ve RSVPed and update our Facebook page.

Work dates are: Oct 27 & 30; Nov 3, 5, 6, 10, 12, & 13 

Bring gloves, water, sturdy footwear, and weather appropriate clothing. We have tools but an extra looper, shovel, or Pulaski never hurt anyone. 

Please RSVP to mrwa.volunteers@gmail.com so we can plan to keep you busy.
