Walking Routes

Find places to walk in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia has many routes, paths, in-door tracks and trails that are perfect for walking. One of the features of the Heart&Stroke Walkabout website is a directory of walking routes in Nova Scotia. These routes have been added by individuals, workplace and community walking groups, and the Heart&Stroke Walkabout team.

We regularly feature walking routes from around the province.

You can also check out this list of indoor walking tracks if you’re looking for a place to walk inside.

Route Directory

Find a route to walk in your community.  This list of walking routes includes maps of:

  • Routes recommended by walking groups
  • Routes and trails created by Nova Scotians for leisure walking, or for commuting to and from work

Each map includes distance (KM/Miles), approximate number of steps for the route, approximate time to complete, information on amenities along the way, and a rating of difficulty by the creator of the route. Click on the route name to see map and details. You can also search by location or community.
