Cape Split

Average Rating:    (4.38 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 16

About 7km of dirt trail with lots of slippery roots and volcanic rock (about 26 million years ago there was a Hawai-like-shield volcano in the middle of the Bay of Fundy). Lots of hard and softwood canopy overhead. Trail starts at sea level and ends about 200' above in an open field. Sheer clifts on each side and lots of nesting birds to watch. Also the rip tides and fundy tidal bore are fun to watch. The return trail is mostly downhill for an easy ride back. Lots of hikers are on the trail so some caution and respect is required.

Summary:
LOVED IT... decent ride and well worth the drive there if you dont live in the area and the view at the end of the trail is fantasic...
the way i took through had an electric fence beside part of it and let me just say that a soaked biker standing in a puddle doesnt mix very well with an electric fence.
one thing that you have to do if your planning on riding this trail is have alot of water and somthing to eat and also keep an eye out for other riders coming towards you and also any hikers that are using the trail.
oh yeah dont forget a camera!!!

Recommended Route:
hmmm cant remember the drive there or the drive back except for finally stopping store

Summary:
This trail is awesome. Not much of a scenic route along the way but when you finally reach the open View, it's Priceless. There is one main Path and Isuggest to just stay on it but keep a look out as there are many hikers and bikers on this trail.
The Hike takes about 4hrs to and from but it depends on how fast you want to walk it. We flew thru the trail in about 1hr 25 min there and about 1HR 45MIN on the way back. IT'S A MUST BRING A CAMERA, WE DID NOT AND I'M KICKING MYSELF IN THE ASS FOR IT. Take time to relax when you reach the open, have a picnic, take some pictures, we arrived on a beautifully Clear sunny day and it was Perfect. If you live In Nova Scotia and have not hiked this, it's a must. I've been here 10YRS now and it was my first time. Friendly people along the way as well and people from all across venture to check it out

Summary:
I've only just arrived in Nova Scotia, and squeezed in a few rided in the Gaspereau area, and was looking for a ride on the North Mountain side of the Annapolis Valley. Someone suggested Cape Split. They said it was a great ride, but lots of hikers, so choose your time wisely. I went out on a friday afternoon figuring most people would be at work or the bar... The trail was mostly empty. It was a good sustained uphill. Not tough by any means, but noticable on the return route with all the downhill. (1 hour in - 1/2 hour out!) It's fairly fast with some technical spots, and about 1/2 single track and halr double. I highly recommend this ride for the great trail and the awsome reward of the "split" at the end. By far some of the best scenery on the east coast. If your in Nova Scotia for one ride, CHOOSE THIS ONE!

Recommended Route:
Only one way in!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Check with Brian at Step Outside in Wolfvill for tips, trails and a twice weekly group ride.
