Nova Scotia Hiking Trail & Adventure Maps•Each adventure guide is personally crafted with custom maps, videos, photos, and 360° views.  My goal is to equip you with all the tools and information you need to plan & explore each location yourself.

•Unlike common trail apps, doesn’t rely on unverified crowdsourcing.  I record GPS coordinates firsthand to create reliable, custom-detailed maps & guides.  These maps are intended for use on your phone’s Google Maps App (iPhone & Android).  Click this graphic for a basic overview.  Some phones may open the map links in a web browser rather than the Google Maps App.  Here’s how to fix that for iPhone or AndroidDisclaimer:  Never rely solely on your phone for navigation & always carry a compass, printed map, extra battery, safety gear & tell someone your plans.360° hiking trail maps

See this graphic on how to see 360° Virtual Reality Views of specific locations on each map.  For an extra-immersive virtual tour experience, use an inexpensive virtual reality headset with your phone.  Simply click the eye-goggle icon in any 360° photo, or video to view them in full 360° virtual reality.

    Terence Bay Trail from Irisweg Drive Brookside NS to River Rd Terence Bay
    Not been able to complete it myself. Certain times of year there are many flooded spots(Spring/Fall) Used by ATV’s at weekends from the Terence Bay entrance. Limited parking at Brookside entrance

    • Thanks! Didn’t know about that one, but Terence Bay Wilderness Area is full of adventures. The “Crows Nest” has been high on my to-do list for a while. I always jot down anything I learn about the Terence Bay Wilderness Area, so I’ll be adding this as well. Much appreciated.

  • What destination should I add to next? Let me know…
