This 3km trail passes through a diversity of habitats from agriculture land and wetlands to wooded areas with an abundance of plants and animals. Look for the waterfowl that nest in the old lagoon, muskrat and also beaver that are always busy chewing vegetation.
During the gaspereau spawning run, you could see upwards of 20 Bald Eagles resting along the shore or fishing for gaspereau. Pigot’s Trail offers scenic views of the Island’s first Canadian Heritage River – the Hillsborough. The Acadian dikes which were once the mainstay of Acadian farms are still visible beside the trail.
