Halifax isn’t just about its downtown core, its amazing events, unique shopping, or its world-class culinary scene (although let’s be honest, those are pretty fantastic too). The Halifax region is home to some incredible hiking trails, and get this – they can be accessed within a 30-minute drive from downtown Halifax!
