historic site

Kidston Lake Trail is located in Rockingstone Park in Herring Cove, Nova Scotia. The park includes Kidston Lake and the surrounding mini beach, as well as the historic "rocking stone". Historically the park was a homestead owned by Kidston family, within which the giant glacial erratic can be found and can supposedly be "rocked" by jumping on a log as a lever. The park includes many side trails and pathways. This map follows the most easily accessible gravel and dirt pathways in this almost always flooded and muddy area. Parking Information: Best parking is at the Rockingstone Park parking lot at the end of Fieldstone Street.
