Welcome to Hike Nova Scotia

Hike Nova Scotia encourages and promotes hiking, walking and snowshoeing throughout Nova Scotia.

Imagine more Nova Scotians and visitors enjoying a broad network of places for hiking, walking and snowshoeing and doing so in a responsible manner. Help us create a culture of hiking in our beautiful province. Hike, walk and snowshoe...

  • to enjoy nature
  • to view beautiful Nova Scotia scenery
  • to spend time with family and friends

Hike Nova Scotia recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage to develop and promote our cultural resources for all Nova Scotians.
