Fall Hikes Attract Many

The Fall Guided Hike series, organized through Hike Nova Scotia with eight local host organizations, was another success in September and October. There were 12 guided hikes offered across the province with 275 participants.

Our local host partners included: Town of New Glasgow; Halifax North West Trails Association; County of Annapolis Recreation Services; Valley Trekkers Volkssport Club; Chester Recreation and Parks; District of Lunenburg Recreation Department; McIntosh Run Watershed Association; and Alabaster Springs Nature Park.

Hike participants qualified to win “trail prizes” and many of the hikes had 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. We look forward to the 2014 Winter Guided Snowshoe Hike series!

Here some photos from three of the hikes:
