The Mainland North Linear Trail is a multi-use 4.5-km (9km 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 quite a challenge to many! The trail is maintained in the winter, so it is no longer suitable for cross-country skiing. Dog walking on leash is permitted. Be cautious as the trail crosses several main roads along the way. The 1km wooded loop into the Mainland Common near Westridge Drive adds a quiet walk through natural landscapes, including overlooking a bog.
