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.

Map of Chebogue Meadows Trail

 

 

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)

Hike Tkipok Trail in Arcadia

The Tkipok Trail is located behind Arcadia School.

The one-kilometre trail – weaves through wooded sections and boardwalks along the marsh – has new and improved fitness stations installed so people using the trail can incorporate other forms of exercise into their walk or run.

A major component of the trail revitalization has been to introduce the historical and cultural aspect of the Mi’Kmaq people.

 

How many different colours have you seen?

 

 

There are chances to see many animals, birds and insects along the trail. Deer, rabbits, squirrels, dragonflies and many varieties of birds. For any curious child (or child at heart), this can be a great adventure!

 

 

Informational signs are all along the trail.

 

There are interpretative signs placed along the trail. These signs include science, wilderness, cultural and historical information that will also include translations into the Mi’Kmaq language.

The Tkipok Trail is like an outdoor classroom for all ages! It’s a short hike with so much to offer so if you don’t have much time, it’s ideal. Try it today and let us know what your favourite part is!
