Welcome to Hike Nova Scotia

Hike Nova Scotia encourages and promotes hiking, walking and snowshoeing throughout Nova Scotia.

Imagine more Nova Scotians and visitors enjoying a broad network of places for hiking, walking and snowshoeing and doing so in a responsible manner. Help us create a culture of hiking in our beautiful province.

Hike, walk and snowshoe...
  • for physical activity and health
  • to enjoy nature
  • to view beautiful Nova Scotia scenery
  • to spend time with family and friends

Hike Nova Scotia thanks the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness for its support.
