My wife Sara’s birthday is ideally situated in the middle of July.  It’s primetime summer in Nova Scotia and we often take the opportunity to celebrate with a special adventure.   We had limited time due to our son Jaden’s and daughter Lienna’s busy soccer schedules so this year we decided to do a mini-vacation.  Another consideration for our trip was our spirited one-year old golden retriever Quentin – who was bound to make things interesting for us!

Cape George Heritage Trails

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.
