Quarry Lake and Birch Cove Lakes Trail is a lakeside hike located in the Blue Mountain Birch Cove Wilderness Area near Halifax, Nova Scotia. The trail begins in the Kearney Lake Trail system, winding through the Hobson Lake Trail and Fox Lake Trail, before continuing on and connecting to the Evil Birch Mountain Bike Trail. The trail offers beautiful look off views of the lakes and wilderness area, and ends at a look off on top of the hill before the Quarry. From here the pathway is overgrown and no longer possible to follow easily. Visitors wishing to continue on should take extreme caution and stay within sight of the mapped trail.
