Round Hill, Bridgetown treks planned

Several snowshoe treks are planned for Annapolis County in January, but that doesn't mean you have to wait for them to go snowshoeing. Old Mill Trail off Adam Drive, pictured, is a good place to try it.

Hike Nova Scotia and Annapolis County Recreation are teaming up for a couple of snowshoe hikes in January – one at Valleyview Provincial Park and the other in Round Hill. Anyone can participate and if you don't have snowshoes, that's okay because Annapolis County Rec will reserve a pair for you when you call to pre-register.
