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 sparrows, kinglets, and brown creepers.
More funds are needed for repairs and to pay the annual trail fees. You can earmark your donation to Kingston Peninsula Heritage for the Moss Glen Nature Trail! Donations accepted by e-transfer to Kingstonpeninsulaheritage@kingstonnb.ca or through the online giving link https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/the-peninsula-heritage-inc/
Note: Please remember to bring suitable footwear (trail has wet areas) and be prepared for bugs.
Directions from the Gondola Point Ferry: Turn left onto Highway 845, then turn right on Williams Road just past the Moss Glen Legion. Go down the road 800 metres, and the trail starts on your left and is marked by a green sign. Once on the trail, please follow the looping route counter-clockwise to avoid crossing paths with others.
