Hiking Summit


About the Summit
The tenth annual Nova Scotia Hiking Summit is a celebration of hiking culture. Held in a different community each year, the 2023 Summit will take place on June 2, 3 and 4, 2023 in Antigonish. Avid hikers, hiking clubs, trail groups, provincial government, municipalities and others will attend. The Summit includes workshops, hiking stories, networking opportunities and, of course, hikes! It will shine a light on the beautiful trails found in and near the Antigonish area, keen trail groups and hiking leaders. Antigonish and area has lots of great hiking opportunities we will showcase throughout the Summit, however many trails sustained significant damage from Hurricane Fiona and some of that will be seen on Summit hikes.
