Fox Lake Trail is one of multiple trails located in Kearney Lake, Nova Scotia as part of the Birch Cove Blue Mountain Wilderness Area. Fox Lake trail connects onto Hobson’s Lake trail, Charlie’s Lake trail, and Quarry Lake and Birch Cove trail. The trail features rocky terrain, and numerous look-offs, and at times can be difficult to navigate due to the various paths sprouting from the main trail, despite some on trail signs and maps. Wheelchair use in not recommended, however the trail is kid friendly, and usable for snow shoeing in the winter. Parking Information: Best parking is at the end of Collins Road, from here the trail begins directly straight ahead into the woods (not along the fence). Parking is also available at Maskwa Canoe Club parking lot, but requires a small trek to get onto the Fox Lake trail.

Was a bit confusing to navigate at first because you need to connect to another trail before reaching Fox Head Trail. There were some orange spray paintings and some signs here and there to guide you though! We kept going where it said Fox Lake, and didn't check out the Look off part, which I now regret! A few other trails all interconnect so you can choose a shorter or longer trail. The route we took to and from Colins Rd was about an hour and 15 mins. Again, we may not have gotten the whole experience. Nice area though close to the city :)
