Trail was pretty wet from all the rain but was an amazing hike great views from the top!

Pretty walk in the middle of the city. Great for date nights - lots of people watching, dining and drinking options, art, etc. Love coming in the morning to watch the sunrise.

Beautiful panoramic look-off views. Very moderate level trail with narrow paths, and some steep climbs and rocky areas. Completed in about 3 hours.

Well marked, great camping spots and the landscape changes drastically throughout the trail so it never gets boring. I did it with 1 overnight stay. There was a good camping spot on the farthest loop where the portage trail crosses the actual trail at upper five bridges lake, it’s fairly flat with smooth small gravel and beautiful lake view. At a fast pace it took me 8 hours total hiking but I stopped for breaks which aren’t included

Lovely easy hike with interesting history and great views

Very easy trail. My two boys and I walked the trail no problem. Nice peaceful walk.

This is one of the best spots in the HRM for having it all. Tons of parking, bus route right to it, picnic tables, wooded areas, rocky shores and cliffs, tras suitable for walking and running, tones of history and ruins from old harbour defensive structures and wonderful scenery. But the highlight for me with this trail system is the sunrise. So far the best I have seen in the HRM, and with in a minute walk of the parking lot. I love to watch it then I have more motivation for the up coming run or hike!

if you like local history and want a short stroll in a beautiful community this is the spot.

Shot easy loop, typical pond/wetland area. very nice to have a spot like this right in the city.

Great spot to get a hike in when pressed for time. The dogs love it and it is ready for use year round.

A nice walk with an amazing view for almost all the way. although it is a short trail, there are tons of foot paths to be explored, you could spend days doing it. if you don't mind pulling up a rock it is a lovely spot of a picnic. the oven and rock features make it an amazing place for photos, scenery painting or insperation. Definitely a place I will keep going back to!

This was a great trail right in the city. Had to stop and really pay attention to the map. Trail markers were hard to find. Backtracked a bit. Fun adventure. Need good stable footwear. Lots of roots, rocks, climbing and stumps to navigate. Took us longer than expected.

Amazing views, definitely worth the time to stop when touring the Cabot Trail.

A quick early intermediate hike featuring well-maintained, clearly marked paths with a few different route options along the way. The colours of the leaves in the Fall are very nice!

The trail is overgrown but a nice hike .The decent to the bottom of the falls I would definitely not rate as easy .Moderate to hard is more accurate but to the view of the falls is pretty easy ,muddy and alot of downed trees though. Very easy to get turned around and take the wrong trail out as I did but you just walk the Browns Mountain road back down to the car and still beautiful

Incredible and unique coastal views. Paths were slightly wet but generally very easy.

Very easy trail for the whole family. Mostly we cam to see the Dingle Tower. Beautiful views from atop the tower. Plenty of parking.

Historic site with many different trails available to explore the area. No shortage of parking and there are plenty of beautiful views.

Beautiful rugged coastline trail. Limited Parking available at the trailhead. Lots of surf and crashing waves against big rocks for lovely photos.

Nice boardwalk trail right beside Fisherman's Cove. There is plenty of parking but the lot can be very busy during the summer months with Fisherman's Cove so close by. Easy walk for the whole family with beautiful views. It was raining quite heavily the day we were there so no pictures.

Easy trail, steep in places but nothing you can’t do in regular running shoes. Gorgeous view at the top- go down to the second look out around the corner from the first- well worth it!

Did this in the pouring rain. The steep uphill ascent felt like hell in the rain, but the payoff was worth.

Stunning cliff top views and easy forest paths. Mostly solid terrain with a couple rockier rough patches, many small hills. Very windy!

Gorgeous views! About 4km exclusively uphill at the start with varying terrain (gravel, tree roots, rocks, stairs). Beautiful fall colors, streams and views along the way. Can be fairly wet along some parts but I didn't have an issue with sneakers. The various lookout points are astounding, particularly the very top. Absolutely breathtaking and also moderately difficult in terms of physical activity. Had about 105 "flights of stairs" on my Garmin watch and a heart rate up to 190. Took about 2 hours. Highly recommend!

Beautiful scenery.

This is one of my favourite trails in Nova Scotia. A good challenge, nice features, beautiful views. It is near Wolfville, so pick up a light lunch or enjoy a great dinner.

Great day spent exploring McNabs Island. Nice trails and fun to walk around the ruins and lean about the history of this island. We took many breaks and enjoyed nature. Fun day!
