A smooth 45 minutes from Halifax will get you within view of the Bay of Fundy, which boasts the highest tides in the world. From there, we follow the Evangeline Trail (scenic Harvest Highway), exiting at Greenwich for a stop at Noggin’s Corner Farm Market. Noggin’s is one of the oldest and largest apple producers in Canada and ships internationally under their own Bishop’s Favourite label, bearing the surname of the founding family, which still owns the farm. They also grow, sell and produce an extensive variety of other produce and products. We’ll continue to Canning, a picturesque village, where you’ll have the opportunity to eat at a wholesome café. From Canning we’ll drive along windy roads between fertile fields to Blomidon Provincial Park. A stunning beach, bordered by tremendous red cliffs with three waterfalls, highlights this park. The final stop will be The Lookoff, which offers the best view of the Annapolis Valley and is actually tough to describe. If desired, we can stop in Perreaux on the way home for ice cream.
This is a half-day trip. Or make it a full day trip. After The Lookoff, for the hikers, why not continue another 10 minutes to Cape Split, a five-hour hike on a breathtaking trail of geological significance.
