Outdoor Adventures in Halifax

25 exciting & little-known adventures less than 30 minutes away

by Dale Dunlop and Ryan Barry

Great outdoor adventures that locals don't know and visitors never experience.

Dale Dunlop's long-established bestseller, Exploring Nova Scotia, is a bible for people who like to get out and explore. In this new book Dale and his co-adventurer, Ryan Barry, focus on adventures within easy day-tripping distance of the city centre -- and sometimes right in the city itself. From hikes across the Barrens to Polly's Cove with views of Peggy's Cove few have seen, to mountain biking a beautiful series of trails at Spider Lake, Haligonians and visitors alike will be amazed at how much there is to discover near at hand. Included is a new spot to cross-country ski with a chance to ice fish at the end of the trail at Jerry Lawrence Park, and a kayak route through wilderness areas to see stunning vistas of the Atlantic coast at Shut-In Island.

Dale Dunlop and Ryan Barry offer the inside scoop along with detailed information about how to find each location, stunning full-colour photography and tips about what to bring with you. Also included are GPS co-ordinates, cell phone coverage details and easy to understand graphics indicating level of difficulty and type of adventure.
