Sugar Moon Farm is the perfect hiking destination.

We're situated in one of the best areas of the province for outdoor recreation. 

There are over 30 km of trails created by the Cobequid Eco-Trails Society within minutes of the farm that are perfect for hiking, snowshoeing and back-country skiing, in addition to snowmobile/ATV trails. Keep us in mind for winter sports: we typically get more snow here than anywhere in mainland Nova Scotia! 


Go HERE for trail maps of all the nearby trails:

  • Rogart Mtn Trail (6.2 km beginning and ending at Sugar Moon parking lot)
  • Earltown Lakes + Portage Trail (5 km)
  • Sandy Cope Loop (6 km)
  • Gully Lake Trail (13 km) 

 The trails are all part of the Cape to Cape Traila 400+ km footpath that will go from Cape George, Antigonish County to Cape Chignecto, Cumberland County. 


Don’t have your own snowshoes? No worries! We have 10 pairs of snowshoes to rent as well as a few pairs of ice grips.

Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, the best trail to start with is the Rogart Mtn Trail beginning right at our parking lot.

Here's a great description of a winter hike on this trail by blogger Amanda Cashin: Rogart Mountain:  A Peaceful, Snowy Hike


Although there are no groomed trails nearby, you are welcome to cross-country ski the "back way" for a couple of kilometres along the Rogart Mtn Trail. We don't recommend skiing the whole trail - it's steep and narrow and not designed for skis.  


Sugar Moon Farm is just down the road from the Gully Lake Wilderness Area off the Kemptown Road.  This unique protected area is full of snowmobile, ATV and hiking trails - perfect mountain biking and back-country skiing opportunities.  Just check with us before setting out - it's a big, wild area and you should have a map.


Wentworth Ski Hill is only 30 minutes from Sugar Moon Farm and boasts some of the best downhill skiing, snowshoeing and back-country skiing around.  The Wentworth Hostel is near the ski hill and worth checking out:  it's charming, economical and surrounded by amazing trails and views.
