      Nova Scotia is an ideal province for mountain biking. Downhill, cross country, solid granite all season parks aswell as dirt, mud and gravel. a mixture of adhoc and publicly owned trails and riding areas. Nova scotia has lots of established riding areas aswell has a handfull of new ones either in devlopment or planned for the near future. Trailforks is an awesome way to find them but more are out there just waiting to be mapped.
