Beautiful hike only minutes away from Peggy’s Cove. Only room for parking 4-5 cars and the trail isn’t marked from the road. You just have to look where there’s other cars pulled off to know where it is. Otherwise you can park along the road if the small pull-off is full. Parts of the trail are sometimes muddy - chose footwear appropriately. In the summer this trail is extremely busy with both tourists and locals alike. Note: inland the temperature will be 10 degrees warmer than the Peggy’s Cove area (typically anyway). It would be good to check the weather and wind speeds before you head down to this trail. There are lots of good places to have a picnic on this trail. There are also remnants of war bunkers to take a look at. The trail has several off trails and you could explore for ever. This trail is directly on the ocean. Best day to do this trail is on a sunny day, as you will get the most beautiful green-blue reflections from the water in any pictures you take. There are extremely steep parts and scaling up and down some large rocks. Do not wear sandals like some unknowing people do. Also... don’t be one of those people to go down on the black rocks...unless you want to die of course. This doesn’t just apply to Peggy’s Cove.. anywhere along the ocean. These rocks mean a wave can come out of nowhere and sweep you under and take you out in a rip tide. Do not let your kids or animals attempt to swim here either. The trail is good to hike with dogs on but there maybe be parts you need to help them along with (or turn and go back the way you came). This is a trail I would do more than once for sure.

Went in mid- November. Trail still good but a bit muddy. Definitely need sturdy boots- lots of rocks and uneven terrain. Coastline views are spectacular. Well worth it.

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

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!

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

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.

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!

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.

A gorgeous hike right on the ocean - highly recommended!

Finding the trail head wasn't too difficult however, there isn't a lot of parking and if you are driving too quickly you may miss it. Otherwise, this is a beautiful oceanside trail with magnificent vistas and a lovely distance view of Peggy's Cove and the lighthouse to the west.

Very busy trail and easy to walk past the trailhead. Aside from that this is an easy trail for anyone to walk and the views are absolutely amazing. We saw seals wading in the surf the day we were there. There's lots to explore here so make sure you have a lot of time!

definitely my favorite coastal trail with lots of elements, you will never get bored aha!

Awesome hike. Views were spectacular!

Really nice hike. Great views at the top. Like others we took the service road down and actually ran into a bear on the trail. Gave it some space and it was fine. Just be careful if you do the hike in the early morning or closer to the evening.

Nice little hike. We did several of these on our down days.

This is one of our favorite hikes.Views are amazing and variety of terrain just right

Tiny parking lot with room for 4 or 5 cars, if you're driving west and pass Peggy's Cove you've gone too far! Great alternative to the crowds at Peggy's Cove. Beautiful oceanside walk. Dog friendly. Very sunny trail, not much shade. Easy footing.

Easy, heavily used trail with great views of the rugged coastline. We were lucky enough to see 10 to 12 seals playing in the surf breaking around several rocky islands just offshore. Private property so be respectful. It's also a nature preserve so minimize your impact!

Stunning! Beautiful views and flowers. Easy to miss the small parking lots but you may see cars parked along the road. :)

My favourite hike. Beautiful views and lots of opportunity for adventure.

A fun trail with nice views. Keep to the spray painted blue markers to find the trail for most of the way. Be prepared for anything though: mud, rocks, boulders, bogs, overgrown trails...and nudists :/
Took me just under 4 hours with a couple stops.

We walked this trail Thursday and it was beautiful! A must see short hike along the Cabot trail. The view is spectacular! Great for kids as well.
