VICTORIA DAY long weekend at Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, 600-foot cliffs rise from the Bay of Fundy while the world’s highest tides lap at their base. Cape Chignecto is a 4,200-hectare natural environment park on a dramatic coastal peninsula. The park features 29 kilometres (18 miles) of pristine coastline, some of Nova Scotia’s most significant geological features, deep valleys, sheltered coves, rare plants, remnant old growth forest, scenic views, and a rich cultural heritage.
We have completed this hike a number of times and enjoy it time and time again. On Day 1 we started at Red Rocks (visitor center) and hiked to Seal Cove to spend the night on the beach (20km). On Day 2 we hike from Seal Cove to Refugee Cove to spend the night on the beach (20km). And on Day 3 we hike back out to our vehicle left at Red Rocks (12km). This is a great 52km 2.5 day hike along Nova Scotia’s Coastline.
