Guided Hike Events
Hike NS and partners across Nova Scotia will offer a series of 50 guided hikes in September, October and November of 2019. The schedule will be available by the end of August
. Hikes will be led by local folks and participants could win “trail prizes.” The Fall Guided Hike Series is supported by MEC, Goose Lane Editions and the NS Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage.
Note that the call for events for the Fall Guided Hike Series has ended
and Hike NS is not receiving any more. If you missed the deadline, you can still list your guided hike on our Events web page but you won't receive the extra promotion for your event, an organizer's kit or a trail prize to give away. Submit your event at the link at the top of our Events web page

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.
