The Nova Scotia Trails Federation is a not-for-profit organization that represents the interests of trail users and community-based recreational trail groups in Nova Scotia. NS Trails supports the work of community groups in the planning, building, maintenance and management stages of recreational trails.
As the provincial trail organization, the primary goals of NS Trails are to promote the development and responsible use of recreational trails for the benefit and enjoyment of all Nova Scotians and visitors to our province.
NS Trails has adopted the motto "Take Trails to H.E.A.R.T.!" The letters in H.E.A.R.T. stand for Health, Environment, Arts (Culture and Heritage), Recreation, and Transportation.
