AWESOME, PEACEFUL…absolutely Incredible!
Please come out and enjoy the trail. Come walk, enjoy the surroundings. Discover animal tracks, the wood frogs, the eagles that soar in the air currents above. Soak up the beauty in the filtered sunlight among the trees that shade the winding trail. Sit awhile in the beautiful ash and birch woods, among the poplars and furs that make up the Acadian Forest of the Maritime.
The trail is comprised of intersecting loops. Three distinct trails of varying lengths. Two people can easily walk abreast the groomed trail.
There are directional arrows on the trail. At the trail head a map is displayed showing trail routes. As well, there is signage regarding usage of the trail. Along the way are benches where one can stop, relax, soak up the essence of being in a natural landscape. Or perhaps read a book, or be serenaded by birds in the branches. (Please do not feed the wildlife as they become dependent on it; which lessens their survival chances in colder weather.)
In the parking lot there is a recycle bin next to the Hall. Please use accordingly. Doggy bags are available on site for ‘doggy dew’ if the owner forgot to bring their own. Please deposit in appropriate bins.
The trail support two geocache treasures that can be found using GPS co-ordinates. Should you link with the above page, scroll down the page to read comments about the caches. (N 45° 03.409 W 064° 23.910 or visit: Sam's Cache
The more adventurous will find the single path, ungroomed trails will take you into the wilder terrain. There is a spectacular view of the White Rock Pond and amazing old oak trees with tree trunks that would require four people to embrace it’s girth, touching fingers from outstretched arms. A rusted truck, circa 1942, lays where it was last parked. Ending it’s days as a delivery truck hauling lumber from the saw mill, the end of an era.
