Hike around the largest expanse of undeveloped coast in Nova Scotia at Kejimkujik Seaside National Park [1188 St Catherines River Rd, Port Joli, NS B0T 1S0, Canada] and revel in its rugged splendor. There are two trails when combined equal just over 6 ½ miles RT. Follow boardwalks through the coastal barrens and bogs.
You’ll notice carnivorous pitcher plants and beach roses frequently dotting the trails.
Head into the coastal forest where you may spot a plover by the lake, hear song birds, see a deer or less commonly a black bear.
Out on the cobble beaches and sandy coves watch out for the endangered piping plovers and snake in the stones.
Search the tide pools for signs of life in the craggy rocks of the headlands.
Admire the glowing turquoise waters when the sun peaks out, its color is due to the granite sand beneath.
Seals sit on the rocks off the shore on choice rocks soaking in the warmth as the frequenting fog melts away.
Good to know:
+The road to the park becomes gravel, but is in good conditions so just drive slowly
+Parking is free during Canada Year in 2017
+There are restroom facilities
