Outdoor Activities

Deemed to be one of the best hikes on the coastal shoreline of Nova Scotia, a walk along the Duncan’s Cove Trail promises wonder and awe. The Ketch Harbor Road leads to this return trail of 8 kilometers (4.97 miles), taking one approximately 2.5 hours to hike the entire length. Along this magnificent trail, one can expect to see tempestuous waters of the Atlantic crashing on rugged rocks, and caution comes highly recommended, owing to its slippery form. Seals and whales can be sighted during late spring, while the historical World War II bunker located nearby creates an aura of mystery. Since this trail can be slightly perilous and exhausting especially for beginners, it is recommended to carry a water bottle and trail mix before heading here.
