Quick video on the new walking trail that was built in 2011 at Graves Island Provincial Park.
I’ve done some research on the island, and sharing the text I’ve used to create an earth cache.
The mountain near Lake Major was named after a tragic event in 1842 where two girls wandered off and died of exposure.
These little girls came to be known as the “Babes in the Woods,” and were buried at the cemetery at the Woodlawn United Church as they were found, laid together in one coffin.
This hike is about 5km round trip and is moderate difficulty based on time of year. A geocache is nearby. This tracks is not an official trail but has been in usage for a number of years. You will need to park by the side of the road and wade underneath power lines until you get to the trailhead. Good boots is recommended.
Quick hike with fellow you tuber dragonflyhiker along the trail in Parrsboro Nova Scotia. We grabbed a quick bite to eat at Bare Bones Bistro in Parrsboro and drove out the 3km to the Ottawa House Museum. From there there are a few parking lots, to park and start to walk to the Island. The area is known for rock hounds, so time your visit at low tide.
In this video, we join in a guided historical hike along Rogers Hill trail. This 8km segment is part of the Cape to Cape Footpath, where the trail will run from Cape Chignecto to Cape George, across mainland Nova Scotia.
Nice medium hike along the Spry Bay trail at taylors head provincial beach, just 30 min further up the show past clam harbour provincial beach.
cell phone reception is good for bell & telus. trails range from beach to backcountry footpath. Although ok for young children & pets, I would recommend leaving them home as the coastline is unspoiled. Access to the trails is available during most of the year. During winter, the gates might be close where you will only have the 9.5km trail available.
We spent a few hours in the Annapolis valley by hiking the trails in Woodville.
These are maintained by the local mountain biking club. These are well maintained trails and well marked.After our hike we drove up to Halls Harbour and took a dip in the bay of fundy.
A recap of race day for the Sole Sisters 5k race, held on June 9 2012 in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

At some point along my hiking career, I will be attempting more and more back country hikes and the odd overnight in the back country. Over the last three years, I started to transition from the world of tent camping to the new & exciting world of hammock camping.
