Snowshoe Hikes Reveal Winter's Wonder


For a second year, Hike Nova Scotia and its partners offer a series of
guided snowshoe hikes in January and February. The hikes are meant to help
get more people outside in winter and being active on our trails.


A series of seven hikes will take place across mainland Nova Scotia,
highlighting some beautiful trails. The guided winter hikes are offered in
follow-up to last year's tremendously successful series of 12 snowshoe hikes
that attracted 350 people.
