Bay of Islands, Eastern Shore, Nova Scotia
Coming from Halifax
on the Dartmouth side
(1 hour & 45 min.)

Follow the signs marked Eastern Shore or Marine Drive until you arrive at Highway #7/Musquodoboit. You will be travelling on Route #107 ( the fastest), #207 (most scenic) or old #7 through Cherrybrook and Preston. For more details, see maps below.

These highways all converge in Musquodoboit. Continue east down Highway #7 along the Eastern Shore through Sheet Harbour and Port Dufferin. This is the gateway to the Bay of Islands region. Follow Highway #7 another 20 minutes until you arrive at Moser River estuary at Necum Teuch Harbour. From the bridge, you can't miss the signs -- the Trail Stop Interpretive Centre is just ahead. Here's what you will see in the winter.
