Cape Split Hiking Trail, Kentville

(4.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Experienced and moderate walkers should tackle the challenge of Cape Split Hiking Trail, a heavily forested trek with sweeping mountain vistas. The trail takes about 2-2.5 hours each way, rewarding you with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, verdant fields, and rocky jutting cliffs as you ascend. Only the most experienced walkers should attempt the side trails that lead toward the cliff, where continuous erosion may pose a safety hazard.

  • Me and my girlfriend stumbled across this walk by accident. We arrived late so could only do a small part of the walk. Will definitely be back.
