Whether you are looking for a romantic retreat or an outdoor adventure on Nova Scotia trails, Liscombe Lodge Resort is the perfect location for you. Their hiking trails are designed to accommodate hikers of all experience levels.

Guests can choose from guided nature hikes for the nature enthusiasts or an early morning power walk! You can discover the beauty of Eastern Shore in a variety of different ways. If you’re looking for more of a challenge, try the more difficult trails like the Liscomb River Trail or the Mayflower Trail.

The most popular trails are:

Liscomb River Trail (9.6 km)
The sound of water rushing over rocks and the warmth of the sun radiating off massive boulders left by the ancient glaciers will put you in touch with nature. The trail includes a suspension bridge that overlooks a waterfall and the nearby fish ladder, which was constructed to help restock Atlantic salmon. The ladder is formed by 15 pools separated by concrete weirs. The Liscomb River salmon-run begins the first two weeks in June and ends in late October, and peaks in July before the water warms.

Mayflower Trail (2.9 km)
The Mayflower Trail is a rugged coastal hiking trail that winds along the mouth of the Liscomb River. Scenic lookouts exist on the trail and there are many opportunities to view local flora and fauna.

Woodpecker and Prospector Trails (400 m)
Interpretive signage is positioned at the start of the walking trail to highlight natural points of interest and cultural history of the region.
