This is one of the most attractive inland sections of abandoned rail line in Nova Scotia. The view of the Mabou Highlands from the Mabou River is stunning, and the stretch alongside the river to Glendyer Station is a paradise for birders. Although I have profiled this as one long hike, you can start at Mabou Station and turn around at Glendyer Station, 9 km (5.5 mi) return. This walk is suitable for anybody who is comfortable with the distance.

Flat to rolling railroad grade. Surface smooth crushed road with some small #2 gravel occasionally. Beutiful water over looks. mixed hardwood coverage for shade and some evergreen. Saw eagles and kingfishers feeding during lunch break
