The Kenomee Trail Society has been developing paths in the Cobequid Mountains for several years. In August 2000, the Devil’s Bend Trail officially opened, extending far up the Economy River towards the large waterfall. I think it is fair to say that this trail may not be for everyone, although it is worth whatever effort required to complete. At 13 km (8 mi) for the return trip, this walk is within the range of most fit people. However, hikers should be warned that this is a real wilderness trail. For most of its length it is a narrow footpath. Further, it passes through a rugged landscape of hills and valleys, with the trail climbing the hillside several times. This route is much more challenging than most Nova Scotia hikes, so expect to be quite tired by the time you finish.

Devil's Bend. Another of our favorites; we usually do this trail every year. It is a lovely hike through the woods on a well established and marked trail. It leads to a beautiful water fall, which is where we always stop for lunch or snacks. There are quite a few ups and downs with this trail and there are quite a few stairs heading down to the base of the falls. Never seems to be crowded and the views are stunning.
