Winter Guided Snowshoe Hikes 2018
Hike Nova Scotia and 38 local host organizations offered the Winter Guided Snowshoe Hike Series from January to March 2018 across NS. There were 40 hikes with over 570 participants (26 other hikes were cancelled due to weather or lack of snow). The free hikes 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 Goose Lane Editions and the NS Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage for their support.

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

page, organized by various organizations across the province.
