Nova Scotia Trunk 7

Nova Scotia Trunk 7

Trunk 7 is part of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia's system of Trunk Highways. The route runs from Bedford to Antigonish, along the Eastern Shore; a distance of 269 kilometres. Part of Trunk 7 is known as the Marine Drive.

Dartmouth

From Bedford at the intersection of the Bedford Highway (Trunk 2), Trunk 7 (the Dartmouth Road) leaves to the southeast along the eastern shore of the Bedford Basin, then climbs Magazine Hill next to the Canadian Forces Magazine and enters Dartmouth on Windmill Road. Through downtown Dartmouth, it is known as Alderney Drive, which turns into Prince Albert Road past Sullivan's Pond as it runs along the shore of Lake Banook. At Grahams Grove Park Trunk 7 continues through the Micmac Parclo, on to Main Street, past Highway 111 and to the community of Westphal, bypassing most of Cole Harbour to the south.

Eastern Shore

Part of Marine Drive

Just outside Dartmouth, three highways head towards the province's Eastern Shore. Route 207 leads out of Cole Harbour, passing the surfing beach at Lawrencetown. Near Preston, Highway 107, a bypass route and old Trunk 7 begin. Routes 107 (a 100 class highway) and 7 (a two lane highway) continue eastward through the African Canadian community of East Preston and the exurban communities of Lake Echo, Porters Lake and Head of Chezzetcook to Musquodoboit Harbour, where Highway 107 ends.

Trunk 7 continues to the east, twisting along numerous inlets of the Atlantic Ocean past some of the longest beaches in the province and through almost 300 coastal communities, such as Head of Jeddore, Sheet Harbour, Moser River, Necum Teuch and Ecum Secum.

At Sheet Harbour, Route 224 leads through Middle Musquodoboit and over to Truro while Route 374 goes to New Glasgow.

At Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia Trunk 7 crosses the St. Mary's River and turns north, away from the ocean. The route follows the east bank of the river through Melrose, Aspen and Lochaber; then continues northeast through Salt Springs to its end at Antigonish where it crosses Highway 104 the Trans-Canada Highway where meets West Street (Trunk 4).
