Located on the Bay of Fundy in Kings County, Nova Scotia, Cape Split is a perfect spot for hikers. The hike is 12 kilometers in length, depending on pace it can take anywhere between 3 to 6 hours to complete. It's a great idea to pack a picnic for when you reach the top! The Bay of Fundy is home to the highest tides on earth & some of the rarest whales. Planning your trek for when the tide is low or high depending on preference is ideal, or perhaps timing it for when the tide changes. It is very unique to see from such a fantastic birds eye view.
The hike itself is moderate-difficult with very rocky sections so proper footwear is essential. The first 5 kilometers or so are throughout the forest, many people stop to bird watch along the way. Once you get to the top there are no rails along the cliffs, be cautious for erosion as the drop is steep. At the top, you'll know you're there as you can't walk any further. The views of the Atlantic Ocean are spectacular. To get there head to Scott's Bay and then you will see signs to Cape Split. There is a main parking lot with toilets.
