Hiking the Rogart Mountain trail we travel through a mixed growth forest packed full of great sights. We will drive through the Cobequid Hills and along the way we will explore a number of waterfalls and lush forests. We then take a guided tour of the SugarMoon Farm to learn the process behind making this local award winning Maple Syrup, with an opportunity to taste their delicate product.
Don't think that's it though as we will get the chance to stop at the Masstown Market for some locally produced ice cream. With so much beauty and flavors in one day it's possible you may not want to go back home.

About Wentworth Valley, Nova Scotia
Like many places in Nova Scotia, Rogart’s Mountain got its name from our ties from the old country of Scotland. A number of families immigrated from Rogart, Scotland to Nova Scotia in the early 1800’s and settled in this location for the purpose of raising cattle and farming. This mountain is part of a chain of hills named the Cobequid Mountains, and are considered part of the Appalachians. The range stretches from Cape Chignecto in Cumberland County in the west through to Pictou County in the east.
SugarMoon Farmbegan in 1973 as Boondock Maple Products. Today under new ownership they continue to produce Maple Syrup over a traditional wood-fired evaporator fuelled by hardwood from the surrounding Rogart’s Mountain. The Maple Syrup being produced at SugarMoon Farm is 100% natural and pure and has received various awards and recognition for their fine product.
