Leave No Trace

It's important to practice low-impact hiking, walking and snowshoeing to conserve and protect our natural environment. Leave No Trace Canada is a national non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and inspiring responsible outdoor recreation through education, research and partnerships. It builds awareness, appreciation and respect for our wildlands. Hike Nova Scotia is a member of Leave No Trace Canada and endorses its Principles:
