Our Featured Nova Scotia Trails & Tours

Liscomb River Trail (9.6 km)
Trail Rating: Difficult
Type of Trail: Hiking
Trail Surface: Mostly natural growth, narrow with rocks, tree stumps to cross

Enjoy 9.6 km of natural beauty on this rugged river trail – one of our favorite local Nova Scotia attractions. The sound of water rushing over rocks and the warmth of the sun radiating off massive boulders left by 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)
Trail Rating: Difficult
Type of Trail: Hiking
Trail Surface: Mostly natural growth, narrow path with rocks, fallen trees, and moist, grassy areas.

Woodpecker and Prospector Trails (400 m)
