Scale 1:200,000. Size 8?"x11". 119 pages. Mussio Ventures Ltd edition. Welcome to the third edition of Nova Scotia Backroad Mapbook. Readers of our previous editions will see several significant improvements in this edition. In addition to countless new roads we have also tracked down hundreds of new trails (hiking and motorized) and continued to add to the impressive number of recreation opportunities. Complementing the maps, our reference section has been greatly expanded and now includes new sections for Hunting, ATV Trails and Snowmobile Trails on top of many additions in the other sections (from Fishing to Winter Recreation).
The backroads of Nova Scotia are never far from the sea; in fact no portion of the province is more than 56 kilometres from the ocean, and the oceans define the land, the culture and the very heart of the province. No wonder, then that fishing plays a large part of the character of the province, and it’s not just ocean fishing. From the mighty salmon producing river, the Margaree, that crosses Cape Breton, to the Mersey River that stretches from north to south, there are some magnificent waterways to lure fishermen and paddlers alike. There are lakes a plenty, which hold plenty of brook trout, brown trout, rainbow trout and a variety of other fish. However, ocean fishing is the big draw here, and mackerel, cod, capelin, hake, flounder, pollack, catfish, blue—mako—or Porbeagel shark are some of the deep sea fishing that helps make Nova Scotia one of Canada's most well known fishing destinations.
