Students from the O2 class at ICS, Kelsi Sullivan, Aylssa Teed, Taylor Barnaby, Hannah Allbright, Roger Outhouse, Maeve Dixon; Cassidy Frost, Andrew Le, Dustin Campbell, Carter Thurber and Garnet McLaughlin of Cobequid Trail Consulting take a break from working on the trail to admire the Balancing Rock.
The municipality is building a website with information on hiking trails in Digby County.
Jeff Sunderland, deputy CAO of the Municipality of the District of Digby says digbytrails.com should be up and running by the end of May.
A trail assessment on the Balancing Rock trail carried out by the province last fall recommended a website for the trail to help people plan their trip to the site.
The municipality decided instead of building one website for one trail, they would create a site where visitors and locals alike can find all the information they need to go hiking in Digby County.

Sunderland says when the site goes live this month, it will only contain information about the Balancing Rock trail but they will continue to add information on other trails on an on-going basis.
The site will describe and have photographs from the trail, it will give the level of difficulty and the amount of time it takes, it will provide a map of the trail and a map to locate the trail.
