Pack up and get ready to hike the beautiful trails of Nova Scotia. From Yarmouth to the Canso Causeway, this new updated edition of Hiking Trails of Mainland Nova Scotia, a companion to Hiking Trails of Cape Breton, provides illustrated descriptions of the most enjoyable and challenging hikes that mainland Nova Scotia has to offer. Michael Haynes hiked and mapped every trail in 2011 and describes the featured routes — from quiet afternoon excursions to serious multi-day expeditions.

Profiling 60 trails, including Cape Split, Brier Island, and portions of the newly created Cape to Cape Trail, the book includes detailed maps and descriptions as well as information on getting to the trailhead, GPS coordinates, time and length, and facilities. Photographs of interesting sites, charts, hiking tips, and sidebars on historical, cultural, and natural subjects round out the experience.

Whether you're a long-time resident or a visitor new to the province, this book is an essential companion. Haynes will also maintain a companion blog for the book at http://hikingnovascotia.blogspot.ca and a Facebook page for updates, corrections, and comments.
