Jitney Walking Trail - Trans Canada Trail

The Jitney Trail in Pictou is a beautiful recreational trail in the Northumberland Shore region from Pictou’s waterfront to Brown’s Point – the landing site of the Ship Hector. Walkers, cyclists and in-line skaters can enjoy a 3-km trail to the site where the ship Hector made its historic landing in 1773. Over 1.5 km of this trail is paved; interpretive panels can be found along the way providing information on the history of the trail, the waterfront and the region. This heritage hike takes you near restaurants, shops, museums and classic examples of Scottish architecture. In the winter months, enjoy activities such as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
