    Looking for places to hang in Canada August 13 - 21

    I have decided to ride the Harley from Virginia up through Canada around lake Ontario, out to Nova Scotia and then back to Virginia. I am looking for some places to hang on my journey, depending on weather, dates and places are as follows.

    August 13 - somewhere in the Niagra Falls area
    August 14 - somewhere near Montreal
    August 15 - somewhere near Fredericton New Brunswick
    August 16 - somewhere near Sydney Nova Scotia
    August 17 - somewhere half way between Nova Scotia and Bangor Maine
    August 18 - somewhere near Bangor Maine
    August 19 - somewhere near Saratoga Springs NY
    August 20 - somewhere near Chestnut Ridge PA

    Any suggestions/guidance will be greatly appreciated. Also, if you are anywhere along my route and care to join me, let me know.

    If you can stretch you first leg to a little closer to Hamilton, Ontario, you could hang at Valens Conservation area. They are very hammock friendly. You might need a reservation at this time of the year though.

    I will let other Canadian hangers help you with hanging spots in the other areas of Canada on your trip.

    Cheers

    The Niagara escarpment has plenty of places to camp or stealth hang along the Bruce Trail. Starts at Niagara falls.

    Rest can't help you with.

    The Fundy Footpath (Not the national park) is a nice shorter thru-hike. Most people try to do it quickly (4 days - it's 65kms direct but with tons of switchbacks, the "path" is a moose trail), but I like to actually see the beauty of the place, so took my time and stayed a day or two in a few stops. The ends are Alma and St. Martin, NB; markers seem to be done from the Alma to St. Martin direction, but I did fine going the other way around. There's also a path that goes up from Alma to Moncton... Dawson path??? Dayton? I can't remember.

    Of course in NS, you have the Cabot Trail near in Cape Breton area. http://www.cabottrail.com/ Gorgeous views!

    Crazily enough, I tend to leave the province to go for my thru-hikes. Most of my times around Montreal are maybe 6k day hikes, so I can't really help you out there just yet (I'm from the other side of the country), but if you find something, please let me know. I'm due for a vacation soon! And hopefully will have my hammock by then.

    I just realised you're already heading to Maine by now. Hope you've had a great trip!
