Nova Scotia Hiking Trails in Winter
It’s time for a snow day! Fresh snow, cool air, and family and friends are the perfect mix for a snow day in Nova Scotia! What better way to enjoy a snow day than on one of Nova Scotia’s fantastic trails?
Let it Snow, Let it Snow…
One of the best ways to explore Nova Scotia’s winter wonderland is by cross-country skiing or snowshoeing on groomed hiking trails. From the North Highlands of Cape Breton to the Annapolis Valley, cross country ski trails are groomed, marked, and waiting for you. The 26 trails in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and Kejimkujik National Park offer over 20 kms of groomed trails for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing when nature provides the snow.
Nova Scotia’s three downhill ski areas – Ski Martock, Ski Wentworth and Ski Ben Eoin – each feature cross-country trails in addition to the downhill runs.
Whether you are looking for family fun, peaceful solitude, or a physical workout, gliding through this winter landscape is an unforgettable experience.
The Thrill of the Ride
Through the forest and over the hills, Nova Scotia’s snowmobile trail system has 3,500 kilometres of marked routes that get you up close to some of the most spectacular scenery in the province. Maintained by more than 20 community snowmobile organizations, riders can obtain trail permits from snowmobile clubs across the province. The Snowmobile Association of Nova Scotia’s website is a great source for information on trails and conditions.
It’s time to get out and play!
