The Beechville Lakeside Timberlea Rails to Trails (The BLT Trail) begins in Beechville adjacent the Coca-Cola plant in the Lakeside Industrial Park and continues for 13 kilometres terminating at the intersection of the trail with the St Margaret’s Bay Rd. This well-maintained trail is level and accessible for cyclists, walkers, and ATV users. It passes several large lakes, a small waterfall, and diverse natural areas, including wetlands.

At the end of the BLT Trail, the trail continues under the management of the St. Margaret’s Bay Area Rails to Trails Committee. The BLT Trail also connects with the Chain of Lakes Trail.

The Beechville Lakeside Timberlea Rails to Trails Association is a volunteer run organisation that manages and maintains the 13km trail from Lakeside to Lewis Lake near Upper Tantallon.
