Free Hike Leaders
Hike NS does not have the volunteer or staff capacity to provide free hike leaders to specific groups, so please contact your local community trail group or municipal recreation department - they might be able to help. And there are lots of free guided hike events already scheduled for you and your group to enjoy on our events page, organized by various organizations across the province.
