Event Black-out for March and April 2020:
Hike NS is not posting group events here in March and April 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 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 urge you to hike in small groups, practice social distancing and follow the advice of public health officials.
