When you drive along the highways in Nova Scotia, you may see a trailhead icon on one of the exit signs. Two of these icons that I can remember off the top of my head are for Cape Chignecto and Cape George. Both are the starting & end point of the Cape to Cape footpath trail. In between these two points are a number of quality hiking trails; one of which is Cape George Heritage Trails.
Cape George Heritage Trails are a network of footpaths totalling 37 kms, only a half hour from Antigonish up along route 337. Coming from Truro, you see the exit signs promoting the scenic route to the trailhead along Highway 104. This takes you past the Cape George Point Lighthouse (well worth the detour). However, coming from the Antigonish direction, you can find the trailhead (Cape George Heritage School) faster.
