Up date - March 2015: The LaHave River Trial Association is continuing their efforts to recreate a trail link between New Germany and Bridgewater. Work begins this spring on the trail section between Goose Chase Road and Veinot Road in Pinehurst. When completed, the Valley will be linked through the South Shore Annapolis Valley Trail all the way to the shops and services in Cookville. The Association volunteers are committed to ongoing discussions with private land owners and would like to assure people that their route will provide full insurance coverage and not limit the landowners use of their property if private land is used.  The Association welcomes members and public input.
