Help Make Change

Part of Hike NS’s role is to be the voice of hikers in Nova Scotia. This means advocating for change in policy that will positively affect what hikers care about, such as:
  • Quality, safe and maintained hiking-only trails
  • Urban wilderness hiking and long distance hiking opportunities
  • A complete and well-resourced implementation and evaluation of the NS Trails Strategy
  • Protection of natural areas and wilderness
