Michael, formerly of NS Trails, has revisited the trails, updated information and added 5 new trails. Remember to bring water and a snack, dress for the weather and if bringing your dog, please keep under control at all times! Unless the rain is extremely heavy, we will walk anyway - you decide. Each walk will last an hour or more. Bring a friend along to join in the fun!
