DRIVING DIRECTIONS: from Kentville, take EXIT14 West off HWY101 onto HWY1, the Evangeline Trail. Follow this road 1.7km to Lovett Rd and turn right. At 400m, keep left to remain on this road and continue another 2.6km, then turn right onto Brooklyn St. Follow this road 850m to the first left at Steadman Road and follow that for 7.3km, to the brow of North Mountain. Turn left onto Hiltz Rd and then, 1km later, take the first right onto Huntington Point Rd. Follow this dirt road, which can be quite rough, for 4.2km and turn left onto Sullivan Rd. Drive down this road 500m to where Sullivan Vault Brook flows under the road at the corner and park off the side of the road.


TRAIL DESCRIPTION: follow the footpath downstream to the falls. This isnt a very long hike, nor will you face many steep sections, making it a fairly easy hike. Sullivan Vault Falls drops over a 15' ledge and continues over a lengthy cascade before another 4' drop.
