Devils Bend Trail
Follow Hwy 102 from Halifax to Truro, exiting left (exit #15) onto Hwy 104 towards New Brunswick. Exit right onto Glenholme Loop, then turn right onto old highway. Follow a short distance and exit left on Hwy 2 towards Parrsboro. Follow road to Economy, then turn right onto unpaved River Phillip Road (road is marked by sign to "Economy Falls"). Follow dirt road up over mountain until you see parking area for Devil's Bend trail on the right.
The Devil's Bend Trail meanders just over 6kms along the Economy River to intersect with the Economy Falls Trail. The look-off stands on a 150m bluff overloooking the "Devil's Bend" in the river, and affords an expansive view. Look for abundant wildflowers in the spring. This trail is part of the very well developed Economy Falls Trail System, and is a beautiful hike through mature forests and sculpted cliffs.
