How to Get to Central Nova Scotia
Once you have arrived in Nova Scotia, Canada, the Central region (featuring the Sunrise and Glooscap Trails) is hard to miss. Located in the very middle of the Province, nestled between the Bay of Fundy and the Northumberland Strait, Central Nova Scotia is easily accessed:
The Trans Canada Highway connects our Province to the rest of Canada and travels through the centre of our region. Central Nova Scotia and both the Glooscap and Sunrise Trails begin in the Town of Amherst at the New Brunswick/Nova Scotia border. If traveling from Halifax, our region is accessed easily by following Highway 102 north.
A passenger train (Phone: 1.888.842.7245) travels across Canada and stops in both Amherst and Truro, Nova Scotia. Taxi service is available from the train stations; however visitors may want to consider renting a vehicle to enable further exploration of our beautiful region.

Central Nova Scotia is just minutes away from the Halifax International Airport (Phone: 1.902.873.1223). Although shuttle bus and limousine services are available, a rental car is the method of travel most recommended for independent travelers wishing to explore and experience our region to the fullest. From the airport visitors will want to drive north on Highway 102. Minutes from the airport are the communities of Enfield and Elmsdale where your Central Nova Scotia adventure begins.
