This Week’s Hidden Gem:

McNabs Island, Halifax   
A hiking trip to McNabs Island is like no other adventure. Your first step is to arrange for a boat ride to this island found at the entrance of Halifax Harbour. Once there, you can wander from end to end on trails and dirt roads. There’s a lot to see including forests, cobble beaches, several historical fortifications, a lighthouse, old houses, a former tea room and the remnants of a Victorian garden. You might even spot a resident deer or osprey. Make it a day-long adventure; bring lunch, snacks and lots of water. An information kiosk in McNabs Cove highlights the cultural and natural history of the island. Composting toilets are available at several locations. Find a boat operator on the Friends of McNabs Island Society website.
