The Mainland North Linear Trail is a multi-use 4.5-km (9-km return) trail linking from just beyond Washmill Lake Drive to Parkland Drive in Clayton Park, Halifax. The wide pathway has a compacted crusher-dust surface. Jogging is popular along this trail, and the hilly terrain offers a challenge to many! The trail is maintained in the winter, so is no longer suitable for cross-country skiing. Dog walking on leash is permitted. Be cautious as the trail crosses several main roads. The 1-km wooded loop into the Mainland Common near Westridge Drive adds a quiet walk through natural landscapes, including overlooking a bog.
