Let's Get Active



The Let’s Get Active (LGA) Committee of NS Trails was created to encourage human powered activities such as walking, hiking, cycling, XC skiing, snow shoeing as well as canoeing and kayaking on our beautiful trails and waterways. All activities are open to the public; children must be accompanied by parents as well as a waiver must be signed to participate.

Thanks to the financial assistance of our friends from Mountain Equipment Co-op, we are delighted to offer prizes of a maximum of $150 per event. Why not serve as an Event Coordinator and plan your own human powered activity on a trail or waterway in Nova Scotia?
