The Coastal Heritage Trail is a self-guided tour of the Peggy's Cove Coastal Region. Our "Museum Without Walls" encompasses the entire region, and highlights with interpretive panels some of our most significant history and culture.
Here you will learn of shipwrecks, lighthouses, churches, old fishing villages and their settlers. Hike on a trail once planned as the main road across Nova Scotia. Walk the trail once used as the Halifax South-Western Railway. With the cooperation of several community groups, some of the most important points of interest have been identified and interpreted for you on our strategically located interpretive panels along the trail.
Discover history in its natural setting by the sea. Learn about tales of great bravery, tragedy and triumph of the human spirit as you travel the Coastal Heritage Trail. Our roads and villages are full of living history. Heritage homes and historic churches are around every corner.
