Through a partnership with the Best Western Cookville, the Arthur Young Trail was officially opened in 2012. There is ample parking at the trailhead, adjacent to the Best Western on Trunk 10.
At first, the trail follows a ridge high above the LaHave River, through forests of tall oak trees. After a breathtaking scenic view over the LaHave River Valley and the Town of Bridgewater, the trail turns to a series of switchbacks through a mature pine forest as it winds downhill towards the river. Several benches are in place to take a rest – it is easy to go down but a bit more challenging to go up!Click here for more information about the Arthur Young Trail.
