Safe Hiker: An Introduction to Hiking Workshop
HikeNS envisions more Nova Scotians and visitors enjoying a broad network of places for hiking, walking and snowshoeing and doing so in a responsible manner. To realize this, we need to give hikers the skills and knowledge to do it safely, with minimal impact and with confidence. Hike Nova Scotia’s Safe Hiker Workshop aims to teach new and inexperienced hikers how to have safe, low-impact and enjoyable hiking experiences. It is supported by Mountain Equipment Co-op.
