First part of trail is walking through loose large gravel/rocks. With lots of water. There are multiple paths to get through so you don’t have to get wet. Once you get deeper in trail is better to walk to n. With the two tracks there are lots of pathways to go through. Main trail is not well marked so is very easy to go off the main trail onto a separate side trail. AllTrails app was essential to get back on track when we veered off course.

Did the hike with our 9 month old in a back pack carrier and it was lovely!

Nice quick spin. Took about 4h with a full pack (testing some new gear for Chignecto). Definitely a MTB trail - first few kms are fairly flat or gradual, but between the rocky road surface and roots one should opt for ankle support. After a day of rain there is a fair amount of standing water in spots (esp on secondary trails). but there are developed trails to bypass the worst spots. Great lakeside spot to hang a hammock at the very end.
