“You can walk the same trail twice, but you’ll never take the same hike.” That’s a philosophy with which wholeheartedly agree. And let’s face it – based on that math – with over 30 trail systems along Nova Scotia’s South Shore – we calculate you can count on a lifetime’s worth wonderful hikes when you get here. Happy Trails indeed!
Each trail offers something inherently unique – so be prepared to forest bathe with the best of them, and cross bridges over racing rivers and stride along side our incredible Atlantic Blue. And with paths carved out for every level of skill – you’re sure to find just the right one for your journey.
Some come complete with remarkable art-installations that will feed your imagination and have you celebrating our sensational scenery along with the incredible talents of our local artists.
And there’s nothing quite like the every changing tapestry of nature here on the South Shore. Each season brings with it a breathtaking backdrop for every step you take.
Feel free to trade those two feet for two wheels and ride the day away along our happy trails. With a variety of terrain you can coast in smooth style or if the spirit strikes you – roll a wee bit off the beaten path.
If it’s more the four wheel… or four leg experience you’re after – we’ve got multi-use trails that have been designated for off-highway vehicles and even horses too.
They run from Peggy’s Cove all the way to Barrington so be sure to have a look through our lovely list park-based pathways and community links below – then make plans to take one or two or as many as you can while you’re here. We’re counting on you to enjoy every inch of our Happy Trails.
