Explore and Discover a Scenic Hiking Destination
Hiking Berwick and its surrounding areas introduces visitors to exploring and discovering nature, no matter what season of the year.
Hikers will experience beautiful scenery while discovering our favourite “secret” spots. You will travel through hard and soft wood forests; criss-cross over little streams, and discover peaceful waterfalls where you wouldn’t expect to find them. Hike along the Bay of Fundy to see 300-400 foot cliffs, explore our natural sea caves and experience rockhounding and bird watching at its best.
Most of all, you will breathe clean fresh air, experience brilliant fall colors and glistening snow. If you’re looking you might just catch a glimpse of wildlife, while birds play majestic melodies in your ears.
These self guided hiking adventures are great for independent hikers who choose to hike alone, or with friends and family. Whatever your experience, age or season, we have a trail for you! Hikes range from an easy, short hike to a moderately strenuous affair. Grab your favourite hiking boots, camera and get ready to explore Berwick and its surrounding areas’ “Great Hiking Destinations!”
Hikers’ Note: Deer hunting is a huge sport in Nova Scotia. Upon entering the woods beginning from September to December, it’s advised to wear Hunters’ Orange and proceed with caution. Check the local tide times for coastal adventures.
