Description & Services

The Woodland Multi-use Trail Association is a group of volunteers in partnership with the Shelburne County All Terrain Vehicle Association committed to the creation and management of a multi-use shared trail system in Shelburne County for the promotion of a healthy lifestyle and to foster an appreciation of our natural environment and cultural heritage (through tourism). 
We have worked on this vision as follows:  
We have built, operated and now maintain and manage over 58 kilometers of shared multi use trail across Shelburne County. 
We have built 10 Kms of trail between Hwy 3 in Sable River to Canada Hill Road that connects with the Tom Tigney Trail (1.2 km Municipality of Shelburne trail) at one end and joins our 8.4 km Tom Tigney Wilderness Trail from Hwy 103 in Sable River (near km 117 at the East Sable River Road intersection) to the Queen's County line at Wilkins Lake to join the Queen's County trail system into Port Mouton and Summerville Beach Provincial Park.  
In western Shelburne County we have built 4.6 km of trail from Hwy 309 in Port Clyde to Clement's Pond at km 64 of Hwy 103. 
We have also joined the Yarmouth County trail system by opening 10 km of trail between the Yarmouth / Shelburne County line at Charlesville to Woods Harbour Trail. A further 12.2 km of trail has been opened by WMTA from Woods Harbour to Barrington Bay at the Cape Sable Island Causeway Hwy 330 where it meets the Barrington Bay Trail.  
WMTA has just completed, in October 2015, a further 10.2 km of trail to join the Barrington Bay Trail to the Clements Pond / Port Clyde trail. However, there is a break in this trail at the Barrington River (Kiack Brook) where we are in the process of replacing that bridge. (The trail detour / bypass is on the very busy and cramped Hwy 3.) We hope to have that bridge replaced by November 2016.  
You can now use WMTA's shared multi use trail all the way from Barrington River to Yarmouth County line and then use Yarmouth County Trails all the way into Yarmouth Town.
