Summary:
The beavers have been busy and new chutes are being created off this trail. Flooding did some damage, but everything is great riding. Have fun.

Recommended Route:
Head up the street on the right of the Needs store. Look for a Black Gate. Enjoy.

Go up Canaan Avenue . Blackgate is across from apartments. Take old shoes and make frequent watercrossing to enjoy the entirety of thie trail.

Summary:
I know that I reviewed it already but I whent back to it againe after wards and rode it and I can't strech how much I love that trail it is by far on of the best single tracks in nova scoita that I have rode and want every one to know that it is super cool no matter if you are cross country to free rider just not on a road bike but also the bike shop is just down the road like less then a 20min walk. Sure "Black Gate Trail" isn't the real name of it but we can't rember it so we call it that how ever I can tell you that Kentville Bike shope built it and it is super wonder bra so go pop a tube!

Summary:
Once you get past the gates your ok cause you will end end up at a "Y" go were ever and take the little trails off to the side its lots of fun!

Recommended Route:
From kentville head towards new minas on the main drag and right befor the needs store is a road with a step step step hill. CLIMB IT!!! and in a short distance you will see a two polls that are black "hence the name" and go around the gates shot down the hill and the sky is the limet!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The gates are really made of paint cans
