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 explore each location yourself.

•Unlike common trail apps, doesn’t rely on un-verified 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, basic 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 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.
