    Red Spruce Loop Mount Uniacke Estate Park

    I can finally say I have completed all the hiking trails in the Mount Uniacke Estate Park-it always seem the Red Spruce Loop got a miss for some reason or other. Last fall, it was because it was flooded during our ‘Mud Hike of 2021 ‘. Those of you who joined me on that hike will know what I mean. This hike is just over 4.5 km and rims Uniacke Lake for part of it and the turns uphill and into the woods. We wore our ice cleats and I’m glad we did…. although some of the trail was bear a of it has ice or hard packed slippery snow.…

    Exploring the Avondale Hiking Trail

    It’s been a while since I moseyed over to explore the  Avondale Hiking Trail-  almost 5 km of winding paths through the woods and alongside fields.

We parked at Avon Sky Winery ,which has a fascinating history itself( click the link to find out more)  But you can also go counter clockwise by parking behind the Avondale Community Hall. Either way you will have  a little walk along the pavement to…

    Hiking the 9 Mile River Trail System

    Honest to gawd, who can keep  up with the burgeoning number of trails in Nova Scotia?  We are so lucky to have so many, but I had never heard of the 9 Mile River trail until my friend invited me to try it out. This volunteer maintained trail (thank you folks!) consists of 3 loops with a couple more to come.     Nova Scotia has had a wild winter with lots of rain and ice. The trail reflected that -very icy in most spots. My husband gave me a new pair of trail crampons for Christmas –Hillsound $70 -and they are awesome. Easy to put on, fit snugly and…

    Black Rock Fundy Shore Trail-A Hike Uncompleted

    This blog allows me to impart information-I hope useful-to others and to report my successes and also those outings that were….let’s say less successful than I would like. A recent hike along the Black Rock Fundy Shore Trail was one of those outings. On a cool overcast May morning, we set out to do the 7.8 km Fundy Shore trail, starting from the Black Rock Community Centre. We weren’t newbies to the trail system; we’ve done shorter trails there before.But I have always wanted to do the one along the shore line. The community has done a wonderful job with trail upkeep and the Black Rock Fundy Shore trail is…
