Hike NS coordinates with local partner groups across the province to schedule a series of guided hikes each fall and snowshoe events each winter.
Winter Guided Snowshoe Hike Series 2017
Call for Winter 2017 Guided Snowshoe Hikes
Once again, Hike NS invites groups across NS to partner with it on delivering winter guided snowshoe hikes in January, February and March of 2017. The purpose of the event series is to: 1) get more people in NS hiking and snowshoeing; 2) highlight local trails and increase their use; and 3) promote Hike NS and local trail groups. Hike NS will help promote events, provide a how-to guide and provide trail prizes to giveaway.
Deadline: December 21, 2016
If you and your local municipality or organization can organize a snowshoe hike (or already plan to host a hike), please register your event here by December 21, 2016 for events between January 14 and March 12, 2017. Note that one organization may register only up to five hikes.
