What We Do


Now, more than ever, Nova Scotians are appreciating the enormous value that trails bring into our lives. As we help each other through the COVID-19 pandemic, having spaces to stay healthy and connected is vital. Trails give us the space to enrich not only our physical health, but also our mental well-being. Trails allow us to deepen our connection to nature, our communities, and each other.

NS Trails is a charity working to support the trails community so that all Nova Scotians and visitors have easy access to safe and enjoyable trail experiences. We could not exist without the thousands of dedicated volunteers who contribute to trail development and management throughout the province through member community-based trail groups and trail user groups. These individuals and their non-profit organizations depend on us to provide the services and supports to help them build, maintain and manage trails in the province. NS Trails has been providing support to thousands of trail volunteers in communities throughout Nova Scotia since 1989.

Why We Need Your Support

When it comes to trails, there is truly something for everyone in Nova Scotia! Our trails provide access to the most exceptional recreational opportunities for all. These trails are available at low to no cost to the user, but trail development and ongoing maintenance is costly. With COVID-19 resulting in a higher demand for our volunteer-managed community trails, we need your support more than ever. Your financial support will ensure our services will continue to be available to guide our dedicated volunteers through this trying and unprecedented time in our history. 



We encourage those who enjoy recreational trails in the province to support the work of NS Trails by making a charitable donation here. You may donate directly to NS Trails, or designate your donation to assist a specific member community trail group by adding this request in the instruction box. We gratefully accept donations of any denomination. Our online partner Canada Helps will email your tax receipt upon completing the online donation process.

We truly appreciate your support!
