We spent three nights at Baxter State Park, once again camping at the cabins at Daicey Pond. Since this year, we shedded a lot of dead weight this year, so we decided to attack the nearest summit from camp – Sentinel Mountain. We opted to park at the day-use lot at Kidney Pond, signed in […]
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.
I teamed up with Expedia Canada to check out some great day hiking spots which also happened to be near some of the local craft breweries that are sprinkled across Nova Scotia. With the rugged coastline and killer views around Nova Scotia, exploring waterfalls within a day hike is one of those little pleasures as the […]

Wards Falls is very common trail that hikers around these parts bring up as they discuss their most favorite hikes. So after a early snow fall in the area, I decided that it was finally time to drive up to Parrsboro and check out the sights!

The main trail we wanted to access was called Cobequid Escarpment, but it is a segment amongst the other trails within the system. Many would opt to hike the Kenomee Canyon or along Devil’s Bend trails. The […]
We talk about finding wilderness trails not far from the city, yet we don’t mention the Crowbar Hiking Trail system, just next to Porters Lake, barely a 20 min drive from downtown Halifax. This was a 6k out & back along the Porters Lake & Spriggs Brook trail until the bridge to cross the stream.
Tucked in behind Windsor, Nova Scotia and not far from the Martock ski hill, we started the first of many exploration hikes within the Castle Frederick Farms Hiking Trails. The 2000 acre woodlot was recently put under a stewardship agreement with the Archaeological Land Trust of Nova Scotia to further protect the six archaeological sites […]
On a hot summer morning, decided to drive down about 20 min from Halifax to Crystal Crescent Beach to check things out.
