The Long Lake Park Reserve Loop is located in Long Lake Provincial Park, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The trail loops through the park following along the banks of Witherod and Long Lakes. The trail begins on the flat gravel pathway from the Long Lake or Witherod Lake trail entrances. From here this loop then follows into the woods on a trail which can be difficult to find, the best entrance is to follow the map and take the trail down into the woods, into Long Lake at the fork. Alternatively the trail can be followed along the side of Witherod Lake, before moving into the woods along the mapped pathway to the left. Parking Information: Parking is available at the Long Lake parking lots off of Northwest Arm Drive, or at the entrance of the Witherod Lake trail, on the side of the road off of Northwest Arm Drive.

Good park. We liked that there was a mixture of hills and flat grounds. Good for a challenge. We loved the tall trees and cute little flowers. The Lake was very calm and peaceful. Easy to get to as well. However, the bathroom was horrifying.

Nice walk through the woods and near the lake but way too many dogs and their "droppings". Not all owners pick up after their dog and ruins it for everyone else. Won't walk that trail with my kids again! :(

Probably the most popular spot in the city to walk the dog, but a great place for anyone to go on a small adventure.
