Official opening of Ellis Bridge along Trans Canada Trail



ASPEN – The official opening of the new Ellis Bridge, part of The Great Trail, took place in Aspen this past Saturday, Sept. 10. This is the third bridge installed by St. Mary’s Trail Association volunteers and a crucial connection for Nova Scotia within The Great Trail’s national network, as Canada 150 celebrations in 2017 draw closer.

The trail opening event included a ribbon cutting and remarks by Lloyd Hines, minister of Natural Resources, St. Mary’s councillor Peggy Kaiser-Kirk, and Blaise MacEachern, chair of the NS Trails Trans Canada Trail Committee.
