The Moss Glen Nature Trail was established as a joint venture with the New Brunswick government, JD Irving Ltd. and Kingston Peninsula Heritage to preserve a unique wooded area of the Kingston Peninsula.
You will see most of the tree species found on the Kingston Peninsula on this trail, including red spruce, balsam fir, yellow birch, beech, white cedar, sugar maple, and white pine. Woodland plants abound, including starflower, Mayflower, goldthread, bunchberry, clintonia, cinnamon and hay-scented ferns. Bird sightings will include chickadees, downy woodpeckers, nuthatches, thrushes, white-throated sparrow, kinglets and brown creeper.
