Port Elgin Nature Trails

Nature enthusiasts take note: a network of over 70 km (43 mi.) of walking and hiking trails come together in this lovely heritage community. Set out near the village footbridge, travelling along the Gaspereaux River and the adjacent marsh. Follow the dirt and grass pathways, over elevated boardwalks, to the Fort Gaspereaux National Site. Raised observation areas along the way allow for a closer look at this sensitive wetland habitat. The Gaspereaux Heritage Trail complements the Trans-Canada Trail to tell the story of this region and its unique natural environment.
