This 101 acre (41 ha.) nature reserve is a mosaic of landscapes, connecting conifer forests, wetlands, beaches, cliffs, sand dunes and grasslands. As the link between two protected beach-dune systems, Gaff Point supports a vast range of biodiversity, including river otters, red fox and the endangered monarch butterfly. Based in Nova Scotia’s popular South Shore, its rustic trails wind through cool, quiet forests and pass scenic views of the ever-changing edge of the sea.
