My Hiking Goals for 2013

I have several goals for this year that are not too extensive.

My first challenge is to hike in all of Nova Scotia’s eighteen counties #hikeNS18. I live in Halifax so I am somewhat central to the province except for the four counties on Cape Breton island. This will be a chance to discover some new trails and revisit some old favorites. I expect I will be visiting  some beautiful vistas and waterfalls.

My next two goals are actually hikes from two books written by Micheal Haynes. I want to do all 30 hikes in Trails of Halifax Regional Municipality #30haliaxhikes and the 60 trails in Hiking Trails of Mainland Nova Scotia #60NShikes. Many on the latter will probably be double counted with my first goal. The Nova Scotia component is somewhat ambitious but it is something to shoot for.

Beyond these goal I am planning on using the Trans-Canada trail to bicycle from Halifax to Bridgewater #hfxtobwater over several days. It will take me from urban sprawl of the provinces largest city through the rural areas on to the second largest town. I also am planning some paddle camping in Kejimkujik and scaling Mount Katahdin with some of the Avoiding Chores contributors.

These are my goals and I know there will be a few additions like some day hikes in Fundy and maybe an attempt of the Dobson trail. What’s your goal? Maybe join me on a few of my trips.
