Join Oceanstone and Hike Nova Scotia on the Polly’s Cove Hike Adventure near Halifax. Come hike with us to experience the beauty of our rugged coastline. You’ll build up an appetite for a barbeque back at Oceanstone, a culinary experience designed by Oceanstone's chef. Later, enjoy some fireside S’mores for dessert! If you stay overnight, you’ll be pampered in Oceanstone’s amazing cottages and inn rooms. This adventure is available with or without accommodation.
Polly’s Cove is situated 2 km from the entrance to the world famous Peggy’s Cove. You can get a spectacular view of Peggy’s Cove from this trail, albeit on a clear day. The rugged beauty and amazing views of the Nova Scotia coastline make this one of our favourite hikes!
The rugged, unmarked trails require a bit of rock scampering at times. There are a number of footpaths to explore and boulders to climb. We’ll take care not to disrupt the fragile eco-system found here in the granite coastal barrens. There can be soggy areas, so be sure to wear waterproof supportive footwear due to the uneven nature of the granite. Note that the rocks can sometimes be slippery.
This hike is rated as moderate difficulty. We’ll cover about 6 km return – great timing to enjoy the view and a snack! Note that the trailhead has minimal parking and does not include washrooms or garbage bins.
