Hiking trails in Nova Scotia is one of those activities that you can do in every part of the province. In this section, we will focus on showing you this variety. All the hikes featured should be capable for most people, but you are the ultimate decision maker when deciding which trail to hike.
Our goal here is not to provide complete hiking trail maps or descriptions, but rather what a normal outing would be. We GPS track each of our hikes and try to share that information by producing a cleaner looking map ann to include it into out NSTrails app.
Take a look, leave a comment. We are always looking for trail suggestions, or tips on what we’re doing.
