Event Black-out for Spring 2020:
Hike NS is not posting group, in-person events here in Spring of 2020 out of respect for the COVID-19 pandemic and the recommendations of public health officials to help limit the spread of the virus through social distancing.
In this uncertain time as society deals with the COVID-19 virus pandemic, we encourage people to still get outdoors (where possible, safe and appropriate). Hiking and walking outside is an excellent way to de-stress and to stay healthy! We are not posting group events taking place in May. However, we urge you to hike while respecting gathering limits
, practice social distancing
and follow the advice of public health officia
ls. Parks, trails and beaches are now open but there are restrictions to their use
. If you have questions about trail use, please ask government directly
. Thank you.
