|Information||This power line corridor or linear park owned by Halifax is a popular walking and running route and is an Active Transportation route with greenway and natural buffers, leading to side pathways and green spaces. It connects to the Mainland Common where you will find the Canada Games Centre, Keshen Goodman Library and Halifax West High School. Approach cross streets with caution. The connecting walkways make the trail a true Active Transport route for the many neighborhoods in Mainland North.
This trail runs parallel to Dunbrack Street and can be accessed at many intersections or walkways. There is access to a Dogs Off Leash Park at Mainland Common Park at the top of Westridge Drive. The trail passes through Clayton Park West and has its last entrance on Washmill Lake Drive at the intersection with Dunbrack Street in Mount Royale.
HNWTA is currently working with Halifax staff to plan a future extension to link to the Larry Uteck area.
