Grafton Brook

Day 2: Grafton Lake Trail – Kejimkujik National Park


Grafton Lake is a stunning trail that has a brook and a lake along the trail. The trail only being 0.4 KM, makes it an easy trail that anyone can handle. The trail starts in a parking lot. You follow a short trail with trees. After a short walk, you hear the sounds of the running water of Grafton Brook.

If you walk along the brook, you will see a small section of the brook split into two sections as is shown in the picture on the top of this page. After viewing the brook, it is recommended to cross the bridge so you can get another view of the brook.

Grafton Lake Trail

Distance: 0.4 km return

Take a few minutes to stroll across the brook and stand where the lakeshore used to be. Once, there was a dam on Grafton Brook to allow for a fish hatchery. When the dam was removed and the lake shrank to its old shores, the forest began to march back in, reclaiming the space. Interpretive panels here help to explain what you are seeing.
