Arisaig Provincial Park
Arisaig Provincial Park overlooks the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait and offers a fascinating window to life on earth some 443 to 417 million years ago. One of North America’s most continuously exposed sections of Silurian rock, representing 4 million years of earth history, is found here. These sedimentary rocks are rich in fossils and features that have helped geologists interpret the ancient environment of this area. A 1.6-km (1-mi) loop trail provides access to many interesting features. From the interpretive kiosk, the trail winds towards the shore through a forest of white spruce. The shoreline portion includes a viewing platform and several access points to the beach. Another viewing station overlooks Arisaig Brook. From Arisaig Brook, the trail climbs a short but steep hill to the top of a small open field, where it returns to the kiosk along the ridge.
Antigonish Landing Trail
The Antigonish Landing is great for a walk, run, biking or walking the dog. Two elevated platforms look over the wetlands to the farmlands on the Williams Point area.The trail is accessible in every season. In the winter enjoy snow shoeing (Snowshoes available at the Town Hall and the People’s Place Library). Enjoy a hike or biking (bike rentals available from the Highland Bike Shop on Main Street).Each season brings its own special enjoyment – spring buds, summer flowers and bird song, apples and berries in the fall. Each turn in the trail brings a new view making this a favorite for photographers. Ducks, herons and other water birds nest and feed in this wetland. Chickadees, red wing blackbirds, warblers and seasonal visitors feast on the berries and seeds.This 2KM trail (4KM return) is on the outskirts of town. The first entrance is just across the railway tracks on the East end of town, on Adams Street. The 2nd entrance is off Hwy 337 just past Tony’s Meats on the Landing Road...
