Welcome to Hike Nova Scotia

Hike Nova Scotia is a nonprofit organization that encourages and promotes a growing hiking culture throughout our great province. We strive to be the voice for those who hike, walk and snowshoe. With every step we’re building a community of outdoor adventure enthusiasts. Join us and get out there on the trails!

Hiking & COVID-19
In this uncertain time as society deals with the COVID-19 virus pandemic, we encourage people to still get outdoors (where possible, safe and appropriate). Hiking and walking outside is an excellent way to de-stress and to stay healthy! We urge you to hike while respecting gathering limits, practice social distancing and follow the advice of public health officials. Parks, trails and beaches are now open but there are restrictions to their use. If you have questions about trail use, please ask government directly. Note that the new gathering limits coming into effect on October 1 do not apply to hiking groups or guided hikes, unfortunately.
