Jungle Safari

Several families came out Sunday evening to hike the Tkipok Trail and discovered some beasts hiding in the woods!

You didn’t miss out! Hopefully those creatures are still in the area (at least until more winter weather chases them away!) and you and your family can check it out! Download and print the Safari Guide and check off the animals you see. If you have any pictures please share them in our event post!

The Tkipok Trail is an easy grade trail but has some stairs to climb at one location.

Spidey-senses are tingling while exploring the forest close-up.

These kids were SUPER!

Family Hiking: Want a challenge?

If your family is looking for a bit more of a hiking challenge, try the Chebogue Meadows Trail in Brooklyn.

Expect rough terrain in spots.

 

Chebogue Meadows Wildlife Interpretive Trail is a 4.5km hike. The trail consists of various terrains such as wetlands, rough footpaths (rocky), boardwalks (some in rough condition), and look-offs.

 

 

 

Trail Sign

There are signs along the trail with information of the trails surroundings.

The trail is marked with yellow and red tree markers. We recommend the buddy system because the trail itself lacks direction so a family hike with older kids is perfect.

That being said be mindful of your turns and stay on the path and you will end up where you started. (If you hit a dirt road, turn around and take the next right)
