Ovens Natural Park is a privately owned 190 acre pristine reserve of coastal forest, located on the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia, along the scenic Lighthouse Route. For hundreds of years, people have been drawn to the incredible beauty, diverse geography, spiritual solace, and fascinating history that make The Ovens Natural Park so unique. Every year, thousands of park visitors hike the spectacular trails along the cliffs to view the famous sea caves, or “Ovens” for which the park was named.

This was definitely one of the visual highlights of our trip. I was up for a good hike and the sights and sounds of the Ovens Natural Park made it all that much better. When we first arrived we were treated to the sounds of waves, but not just any waves, these waves hit the shore with a slap and then as they got sucked back out to sea it sounded like trickling water as the wave washed over the rocks. I tried to get a video of it, but I had run out of space on my phone.
It’s not a long trail but in my opinion it’s a must to see. It’s only about 20 minutes past Lunenburg and once you finish at the Ovens you can walk the beautiful historic streets of Lunenburg. (A post on that coming later ;))
