Fantastic hike! Highly recommended... Bring your camera!

Absolutely gorgeous views but you need to watch your feet as the trail can be rocky or soft. Very easy to twist an ankle. And yes sometimes it can be tricky to find the path. This is NOT private land. It’s a conservation area and the trail is maintained. Wonderful rocky points to climb and sit. Saw people fishing off them. Beautiful spots to watch the sunset. No services and there’s no easy way to return to your car. So plan to hike back. I went three times during my week in the area. A hidden gem b

Great biking trail! Scenic, well-groomed. Came out at Lawrencetown Beach - fantastic spot to stop and rest and then turn around and head back. Love it!

Wonderful trail with steep rugged sections and some narrow sections. fantastic view at the end.

Great hike! Beautiful views all the way, gorgeous fauna and lots of places to stop and let the dogs have some water. Loved the variation of trail from open flat rocks to short steep stints to deep forest and windy trails through lush plant life. Our dogs had no problem with this hike, just took it slow to allow for breaks and water. 3 hrs round trip with our breaks.

Beautiful views. Forest floor is lush with moss and mushrooms . We were also treated to the sight of a juvenile bald eagle and a parent on a branch right above us .

Great workout and absolutely beautiful view once you get to the end! Don’t wear white shoes, it gets muddy lol

Nice easy hike but I only gave it 3 stars because 6k of 9k are on the rails to trails. Nice view of Mahone Bay when you get to the top of Castle Rock.

Hiked the Split with friends who were visiting NS. Trail was in good condition although some mud and water in places. Hard packed with roots and rocks. In the trees for most of the hike and then arrive in the meadow overlooking Cape Split. Awesome view when you arrive particularly if the tide is flowing hard in one direction. We do this hike every year. Total hiking time approx 2;45 at a moderate pace.

this is not a moderate home anymore. 30 years ago it was a cut and maintained trail and was easy, but the ocean and severe weather has turned it into a home that requires sturdy shoes, and had some tricky spots. watch your fitting on the rocky shoreline. amazing views and one of the best hidden beaches you'll find anywhere.

herring cove is very beautiful and this trail is a great hike

a great hike with an awesome view from the top. I'm very glad I went and will be heading up there again for sure!

Beautiful old growth forest....well worth a visit


good trail. pretty standard.

Fantastic scenery! No direct path so you get the opportunity to explore the rocks.

Amazing trail!! We had great weather with no rain but high humidity. Stayed at Refugees Cove and Seal Cove both had swimming beaches which was great as it was mid-July when we were on the trail. Highly recommend!

Amazing coastal views. We did the trail clockwise and it was incredible how the scenery changed around the halfway point and we weren't expecting it. Bring a sweater or a windbreaker as it is particularly windy on one side.

Great trail for hikers of all levels. The end of the trail is a beautiful lookout and is spectacular to see, especially for somewhere so close to the city. Make sure to keep to the left when you start out on the trail as it can be easy to get off the main trail veering ever so slightly right and you’ll get into some thick brush.

Nice quick trail at end of day. We completed this one after a late dinner to work off my large fish and chip plate.

Beautiful trail and views. We picked a very hot and humid day to hike here and will choose a cooler day next time. Luckily, we had lots of water with us and we took our time! Highly recommend this trail.

Beautiful spot for an afternoon hike. I went when it was quite foggy, but the cliffs still provided amazing scenery. The main path is quite easy, but I went off the main path in some parts to walk up some of the rock. I would recommend waterproof hikers because there are a few spots on the main trail that can be quite muddy. Lots of rocky spots to stop and eat lunch with a view of the ocean. The trail isn’t marked so you many need gps to find the start of the trail.

Wonderful hike with so many changes from the path, to the board walk, and along the rocks. Wet ground today through the woods but worth it coming around to the beach. Very easy but you need good shoes for walking the rocks. Missed this hike last year when a man was returning up and said there were bears ahead and I might want to just walk to the beach.

Beautiful trail beautiful scenery! Rated as hard and it is but well worth it. Did the trail in 3 days but would probably opt in doing it in 4 next time to enjoy it more. Refugee cove and Seal cove campsites were perfect! Would recommend for sure!

It’s amazing trail. I would recommend it as it is really moderate compared to most of the moderate trails in Nova Scotia. Most of the time you walk into forest but several amazing views make the trail really beautiful.
Bring bug spray.
