30 Minute Hike – Coastal Hike Along Clam Harbour – Nova Scotia

It’s November and no better time to hit the beach and hike along rugged Atlantic Ocean coastline in Clam Harbour Provincial Park. Park up to the gate (if it’s closed) and simply walk in as parking lots are not maintained in the winter but the road up to the gate are maintained.

Start by walking along the beach towards the rocks, you will see trailhead signs which will guide you along the way. Best time to hike this is during low tide when you can easily walk the firm beach sand and jump onto the trail up to a certain point.

You can hike along the point and return to the first trailhead. The trail is beach, cobble rocks and dirt. Appropriate footwear and good balance is needed for portions of the trail. Expect to clock around 10k after exploring everything. Off season is my preferred time as you might encounter the local hardcore dog walkers. Otherwise great spot to hang out. Or come by during the summer when they have their famous sand castle festival
