The Definitive Book on hiking trails in Nova Scotia.

From the back: 

With trails from Yarmouth to the Canso Causeway, this revised edition of Hiking Trails of Mainland Nova Scotia provides illustrated descriptions of the most enjoyable and challenging hikes that mainland Nova Scotia has to offer.  Michael Haynes hiked and mapped every trail and describes in detail the featured routes - from quiet afternoon excursions to serious multi-day expeditions.

Profiling 60 trails, including Cape Split, Brier Island, and portions of the newly created Cape to Cape Trail, this guide includes detailed maps and descriptions as well as information on getting to the trailhead, GPS coordinates, time, length, difficulty, and facilities.  Photographs of interesting sites, charts, hiking tips, and sidebars on historical, cultural, and natural subjects round out the experience.

Completely revised and updated, this 9th edition of Nova Scotia's most reliable trail guide, a companion to Hiking Trails of Cape Breton, features at least one trail in every county in mainland Nova Scotia and often many more.  Whether you're a long-time resident or a visitor new to the province, this book is an essential guide for walkers and hikers.

MICHAEL HAYNES is the author of several best-selling trail guides and is a leading authority on Active Transportation.  He has worked for numerous trail organizations, including Go for Green and the Nova Scotia Trails Federation.  He is now the Director of TransActive Solutions through which he conducts workshops and presentations on trail development and use.
