Mountain Bike Park

The Links at Brunello’s Mountain bike trails offer a mixed level riding experience with gradual climbs in a forested setting. Our trails are located only minutes from downtown Halifax, and conveniently only a few cranks away from the BLT trailhead.

The closest point of access for the trail is behind the Trinity Church on Trinity Way (across from Tim Horton’s). Due to the elevation gain and variety of terrain our 2.5 kms of bike trails are clearly marked with signage
for beginner, intermediate and advanced level trails to ride and were designed by local outdoor adventures group at Trail Flow.

Access Fees:

The Links at Brunello will be charging a small fee that goes back into the cost of maintaining and upgrading the 2.5 kms of trails and any future upgrades.

Access Fee Up to 1 Hour

Notice to all Mountain Bike Park Users

As with many sports, mountain biking involves the risk of injury, including serious injury, head injury, paralysis or death. The risk of injury increases with the degree of difficulty of the trail and the speed of the descent. Although the risk of injury can never be eliminated, the rider can manage the risk through controlling speed and choosing terrain appropriate for the rider’s skill and experience. Orientation sessions, lessons clinics and coaching offered through The Hub will also assist the rider in managing the risk of injury.
