Featuring five new trails (three of which lead into Wilderness
Protected Areas), newly added trailhead GPS coordinates, cellphone
coverage details, hiking tips, and extra sidebar notes on flora,
fauna, and historic sites that you'll encounter along the way, the
new edition of Trails of Halifax Regional Municipality is
the essential guide to hiking in Nova Scotia's most picturesque
city. What's more, each trail in the guide is graded to ensure that
the route you select best suits your level of hiking
The regional municipality of Halifax offers some of the best
coastal hiking trails in the east, with breathtaking wilderness
trails less than 30 minutes from the middle of the city. Some
routes traverse the region's protected areas, while others cross
inner-city parks and venture on the islands in Halifax harbour.
Winding around lakes, along the ocean, in regional parks, and even
through the middle of the city, Halifax's trails offer fascinating
routes for visitors, families, and serious or Sunday hikers.
