Hike Nova Scotia and its partners across the province offer their annual series of guided hikes in September and October. The series of 15 hikes is meant to encourage folks to hit our beautiful trails and get active. Hikers could win a “trail prize.”
Hike Nova Scotia is pleased to announce that those who join the Hiker Distance Award Program are rewarded with a pin and a gift certificate from TAO The Adventure Outfitters, locally owned and operated since 1991.
The Hiker Distance Award Program helps motivate people to hike or hike more by tallying their hiking kilometres and reaching distance milestones. Taking part in one of the fall guided hikes is a perfect way to begin tallying kilometres. Anyone may register for the Hiker Distance Award Program at www.hikenovascotia.ca/projects/distance-awards.
