Friends of Keji Trail Project at Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site

This project proposes to construct an approximately 2 km trail by 1.5m wide from the existing Ukme'k trail to Meadow Beach (lower Meadow loop in the campground). This trail segment was initially considered as part of the Ukme'k trail project in 2018, however, it was not constructed. Vegetation will need to be cleared for the construction of this trail and completed outside bird nesting season. Excavation will occur to the depth of organic materials except in cases where the trail runs along a slope, in which case digging will be required to be a few inches deeper on one side of the trial to ensure it is leveled. 12 inches of 3/4 inch aggregate will be filled in excavated areas. Consultation with Indigenous groups on this project is ongoing and archaeological testing will be completed prior to work commencement.
