Hike Nova Scotia and 30 host organizations across the province partnered up to offer the 2018 Fall Guided Hike Series from September to November. Over 900 people took part in 48 hikes, which were led by local folks and participants qualified to win “trail prizes.” Hike NS thanks its partners for organizing the hikes on the ground as well as MEC, Goose Lane Editions and the NS Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage for their support.

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

page, organized by various organizations across the province.
