As you approach Peggy's Cove you will notice the undeveloped barrens about two miles on each side of the village. These are called the Peggy's Cove Preservation Area. Left behind as glaciers receded thousands of years ago, this landscape is delicate and development is prohibited.
Go hiking in the thousand acre Peggy's Cove Preservation Area. Glaciers shaped the land thousands of years ago, ancient boulders, some weighing many tons, are scattered along the coast. For those who love and respect the earth, and who wish to experience the connection between themselves and the "Oneness of all Things", a quiet visit to this area is a must. This area is very delicate and we ask that you stay on the paths already created by the many people who have explored the area. Locals can direct you to the best spots to enjoy the area.
