|Featuring five new trails (three of which lead into Wilderness

details, hiking tips, and extra sidebar notes on flora, fauna, and historic
sites that you'll encounter along the way, this revised edition of Trails of
Halifax Regional Municipality is the essential guide to hiking in Nova
Scotia's most picturesque city. What's more, each trail in the guide is graded
to ensure that the route you select best suits your level of hiking
The regional municipality of Halifax offers some of the best coastal hiking trails in the east, with breathtaking wilderness trails less than 30 minutes from the middle of the city. Some routes traverse the region's protected areas, while others cross inner-city parks and venture on the islands in Halifax harbour. Winding around lakes, along the ocean, in regional parks, and even through the middle of the city, Halifax's trails offer fascinating routes for visitors, families, and serious or Sunday hikers.
