Hike NS coordinates with local partner groups across the province to schedule a series of guided hikes each fall and snowshoe events each winter.
Call for Fall Guided Hikes 2016
Deadline: August 15, 2016
Once again, Hike NS invites groups across NS to partner with it on delivering fall guided hikes in September and October of 2016. The purpose of the event series is to: 1) get more people in NS hiking; 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.
If you and your local municipality or organization can organize a hike (or already plan to host a hike), please register your event here by August 15, 2016 for events between Sept. 10 and Oct. 30. Note that one organization may register only up to five hikes.
2016 Winter Guided Snowshoe Hike Series
Hike Nova Scotia and 28 host organizations across the province partnered up to offer the 2016 Winter Guided Snowshoe Hike Series in January, February and March. Over 860 people attended 34 hikes. Local folks led the hikes and participants qualified to win “trail prizes.” Hike NS thanks NS Trails, Doctors Nova Scotia and the NS Department of Health and Wellness (now Communities, Culture and Heritage) for their support. Hike NS also thanks its local partners for organizing the hikes on the ground.
