With over 1,800 kilometers of multi-use trails and close to 400 trailheads, the Trail Adventure Layer gives you all you need to explore the spectacular natural settings of this province. From dramatic coastlines and highland mountain tops to picture-perfect landscapes; quaint fishing villages, historic lighthouses, and secluded coves, Nova Scotia’s trails are sure to lead you to some of the most awe-inspiring sceneries in the world.

Whether you enjoy hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, we offer you the most comprehensive network of multi-use trail systems available than any other source. To make your trail adventures even more exhilarating, we have included actual trail tracks that allow to track your desired routes along with searchable trail activities (hiking only trail vs mountain biking adventure).

In addition to geo-referencing the Trail Points of Interest, we have included short descriptions on most of these sites and trails. These write-ups include location, activities legend (hiking, biking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, camping, and more), nearby amenities and attractions, trail elevation gain, difficulty level (easy, moderate, difficult), trail distance, as well as trail tracks, trail history and wheelchair accessibility, seasonal information and terrain conditions where available.
