Hike NS encourages and promotes hiking, walking and snowshoeing throughout Nova Scotia. It formed in 2007 as a registered not-for-profit society. It is governed by a Board of Directors with strong regional and special interest representation.
Hiking and connecting with nature improves:
- Physical health
- Mental health
- Social well-being
- Economic prosperity
- Environmental protection
We offer a wide variety of events including the Fall & Winter Guided Hike Series, the annual Hiking Summit, Outdoor Council of Canada courses and Re-Connecting with Nature workshops.
Proudly home to the Nova Scotia Chapter of the International Appalachian Trail, we also offer a Hiker Distance Award Program and Leave No Trace Education. Hike NS engages in advocacy and policy development on hiking issues, striving to keep our great wilderness areas protected.
