The Sackville-Bedford Greenway Connector joins the two communities by a footpath, which runs underneath and parallel to highways and overpasses, and is fairly level and well maintained making an easy walk that is approximately 5 KM long depending where you access the trail.
Used by walkers of all ages, joggers, cyclists, dogs on leash, parents with strollers, seniors with canes, it is fairly busy.
On the minus side the trail is often next to the highway and passes the Sackville “firing range” both of which which can be noisy and distracting at times.
The trail runs along the Sackville river and has several bridges that cross over the river, which offers pleasant transitions, views and scenes.
The trail has one entrance at the right of the super store parking area in Sackville which is where I chose to park and access the trail.
The complete trail runs from two historic sites, Fultz House in Sackville and Scott Manor House, Fort Sackville, Bedford connecting the two sites, and the two communities, with a trail along the Sackville River.
Trails along the rivers have progressed from initiatives back in the 1980’s from the Bedford Path and Walkway System Plan, Bedford Recreation Department, the Sackville River’s Conservation Corridor Plan and many other supporters.
