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. And keep us in mind for winter sports: we typically get more snow here than anywhere in mainland Nova Scotia!

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