Rum Runners Trail is a partnership of seven trails to develop and manage the 110km trail corridor collaboratively for the greater good of the community including the economic, health and social benefits. Collaborating since 2012, seven sections of rails-to-trails are linked to each other forming a continuous trail from Halifax to the Town of Lunenburg. Working together under the Rum Runners Trail umbrella, the six organizations manage seven sections of shared use trail. Each of the six trail organizations have permission through the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources or Halifax Regional Municipality to manage the rail trail within their respective communities.
