Description & Services
|Information||This scenic trail overlooks the Atlantic coastline and winds through a post-fire jack pine stand. This pocket of jack pine is significant because it is separated from the rest of its range by 200 km. Interpretive panels tell the story of this area, beginning with a fire in 1921, a budworm infestation and the hardy vegetation that survives today in this harsh coastal environment. If you want a longer hike, connect up with the Coastal Trail.
