Hikes Showcase Autumn's Beauty


Nova Scotians know how beautiful our province is in autumn. Hike Nova Scotia
and its partners offer a chance to experience that beauty through a series
of guided hikes in September and October.


"Last year's hikes attracted 175 people to six trails all over the
province," says Debra Ryan, Hike Nova Scotia President. "This year we expect
at least that many. With more and more trails being developed and
maintained, hiking is definitely on the rise - and that's a good thing."


The series of guided hikes, held for a second year, provides that extra bit
of motivation some people need to explore our trails. Hikes include:


Clyburn Valley Trail, Cape Breton Highlands National Park, September 19, 9

"For lots of folks, fall triggers this urge to get outside and walk in the
brisk air," Ryan says. "We've got some spectacular trails all over the
province, especially when the leaves start to change. So we're saying, 'Get
out there!'"
