Hemlocks and Hardwoods Trail - Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site

Among Nova Scotia’s oldest trees are the 300-year old hemlocks featured on this trail. As you move into the stand of tall, stately conifers, notice how different it feels under the thick-leafed canopy: cool and dark and moist. A hemlock boardwalk will take you over the very sensitive roots of these giants.
Trailhead: Departs from Big Dam Road parking lot Significant Feature: Explore a true old growth hemlock forest and discover giant hemlock trees which are hundreds of years old. Length: 5 km (3.1 miles) loop Hiking Time: 1 hour
