Community Hike

Join us for our community hike this fall in the "Back of Canning" as a part of the #HikeNS Fall Hike Series! There is no cost to participate but you must register in advance by contacting the Recreation Director at We are proud to partner with our Hike Leader Don, of Scotian Hiker, to offer these guided hikes; check their website at to learn more about the group!

Blomidon Provincial Park
Saturday, Oct 12, 10am start time (arrive ten mins early to gear up)

This is a 12kms, 4 hr counterclockwise loop of the full trail system atop Cape Blomidon; this means we will be ascending the steep Jodrey Trail and descending via the less-steep Borden Brook Trail. For unconditioned hikers, the Jodrey Trail ascent is a leg-and-lung burner, so we will have a relaxed pace uphill; there will be other lesser inclines during the hike, but the JT is the most difficult. Meetup is at the lower parking lot at the end of Pereau Road. Please bring minimum 1 L water, energy snacks/lunch, comfortable hiking footwear, gloves/hat if necessary; dress in layers (to remove a layer when you warm up, and to put on a layer when you cool down; synthetic or wool fabrics are best, keep cotton to a minimum), and bring a small knapsack for carrying your supplies.
