It was such a beautiful day yesterday, New Years Day, that we had to take advantage of it and go for a hike. When Scott suggested going to the coast, I pulled out our new Hiking Trails of Mainland Nova Scotia book and found one that was nearby – Green Bay to Broad Cove. The Green Bay trailhead was about a half hour drive from our house.
We didn’t hike the entire trail, as that would have been 12km return, rather we hiked out for just over 2km and then headed back – our total distance 4.5 km.
The trail itself follows along the coast alternating between beach walks and an old logging road, which has been reclaimed by the ocean in many places.
For most of our hike we were alone with the ocean, however, we did pass a few fellow hikers. We got there early enough to get parking, and noticed that it was busier as we were leaving.
