The trail is not marked well at all but basically follows a now defunct road (Old Dalhousie Mountain Road). Lots of shaded woods and more exposed towards the top. Important to stay on the trail as there are lots of other unmarked (hiking, four-wheeler, snowmobile) trails that intersect and it can be easy to go off course. As you continue on the trail you will come out on top of Dalhousie Mountain where the wind farms are located. You go up the service road a few kilometers (passing generator #43 along the way on your left) A sign guides you back onto another defunct road and you follow this until the end. The trail ends at Willis Cemetery and easily connects with the Six Mile Brook Trail. Be careful. This trail is not marked well and it is easy to get lost along the main trail and in amongst the wind farms as well (all the windmills and roads look exactly alike so stay on your path unless you know the area or have a map/compass or GPS with you). Approximately ten kilometers.

Directions:

Take exit 19 on the Trans Canada Highway (104) heading west. Go left onto Highway #4 (west) towards Truro. About ten kilometers down the road passing numerous roads along the way you come to the Glen Road on your right. Before you come to the Glen Road you will notice a construction project up a road on your right. Continue up the Glen Road passing a small cemetery on your left and a lake on your right. You will also pass the Juniper Head Trail entrance on your left. The access point to the Dalhousie Mountain Trail in on your right, about five kilometers up the Glen Road. You can park on the side of the Glen Road (near a gravel pit).
