Charlie's Lake Trail is one of multiple trails located in Kearney Lake, Nova Scotia as part of the Birch Cove Blue Mountain Wilderness Area. Charlie's Lake trail connects onto Hobson's Lake trail, Fox Lake Trail, and Quarry Lake and Birch Cove trail. The trail features rocky terrain with some steep elevation, and an often washed out lake crossing at the halfway point. Navigation can be a bit difficult, and visitors should be cautious of an abandoned cabin and dumping site on the loop that can be prone to broken glass and rusted metal debris. Wheelchair use is not recommended, however with caution the trail is friendly to children and pets, as well as usable for snow shoeing in the winter. Parking Information: Best parking is at the end of Collin's Road, from here the trail begins on the path leading directly into the woods (not along the fence). Parking is also available at Maskwa Canoe Club parking lot, however this does require a longer trek to get to the trail loop, which can be hazardous in the winter or rainy season.
