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 special Youth 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.
