|Hiker Distance Award Program|
The Hiker Distance Award program recognizes hikers for hiking (or walking or snowshoeing) significant distances within Nova Scotia over the course of a year. Tally your kilometres using a log book you can print yourself or request a hardcopy of the logbook through mail or email.
If you tally 150, 250, 500 or 1,000 kilometres within one year (365 days), you receive:
- A 150, 250, 500 or 1,000 km pin to commemorate your achievement
- Recognition on our Honour Roll
