Hike NS Fall Guided Hike Series: Youth & Family Theme

Hike Nova Scotia and eight host organizations across the province have
partnered up to offer the 2013 Fall Guided Hike series in September and
October. There are 17 hikes led by local folks and participants qualify to
win "trail prizes." This year, many of the hikes have a Youth & Family
theme, with some featuring special activities for children and youth. Hike
NS thanks its partners for organizing the hikes on the ground and to
Backroad Mapbooks for its donations. Check out the list of events here:

Young Hiker Challenge

Calling all young hikers (and wannabe hikers)! Hike Nova Scotia challenges
children and youth to get out on the trails. Keep track of the distances you
hike and you could earn the Hiker Distance Award Badge! Tally these
kilometres within one year: ages 5 to 8: 15 km; ages 9 to 14: 30 km; ages 15
to adult: 45 km. No pre-registration is necessary for the Young Hiker
Challenge, simply start hiking and keep track of how far you go! Use our

Logbook to record your hikes. Youth that earn a patch by March 1, 2014
qualify for a prize draw for a $100 gift card. Hike NS thanks the IWK
Community Grants and MEC for their support. Learn more here:
