EARLTOWN, N.S. – A local trail group is holding a six-kilometre hike this weekend for those who want to get out and be active during winter.
The Cobequid Eco-Trails Society is holding a 6.2-kilometre hike through the Gully Lake wilderness area on Saturday, Feb. 10, which will take hikers along the famous Rogart Mountain Trail.
The hike will kick off at 9:30 a.m., starting at the Rogart Trail Kiosk located in the parking lot of Sugar Moon Farm off Highway 311 in Earltown, and is expected to take three hours to complete.
While the hike is open to anyone, the trail includes significant elevation throughout and is considered a moderate to advanced trail for hikers.
The group advises those taking part to watch the weather conditions for Saturday, as snowshoes may be required, and suggests dressing in layers to add or remove as needed.
After the hike is finished, those interested are invited to dine at Sugar Moon Farm, though participants looking to grab some food after are asked to reserve a table for themselves before heading out to the trails.
