The Mount Uniacke trail is a set of 8 trails located on the grounds of Richard John Uniacke’s former estate, which is now a preserved museum park open to the public, near Halifax, Nova Scotia. The park offers a wide range of trails, from easier gravel loops (Lake Martha, and Hothouse Hill), to lesser maintained wooded trails such as Wetlands and Red Spruce Loop. This trail guides visitors through all of the trails located on the estate. Hikers should take caution in the later parts of the trail (Wetlands, Barrens and Red Spruce), as these areas have lesser maintenance and some overgrown areas. This trail is also prone to wash out and can be extremely wet and marshy in the Spring and rainy season. Parking Information: Parking is available at the museum parking lot.

This is a great trail for snowshoeing! We have also enjoyed the trail in the spring and fall, lots of mosquitoes in the summer. The trail is wide and fairly level and goes along the lakeshore, turns up into a spruce forest and leads over a hilltop with an excellent view. There are outhouses at the trailhead and interpretive signs along the trail on the history of the Uniacke Estate.
