Rogers Brook

Day 2: Rogers Brook Trail – Kejimkujik National Park

Story

Rogers Brook is a beautiful trail with lots of water and greenery. After doing a very short walk from the start of the trail, you will see the brook with a wooden bridge, letting you know there is even more to see on this fabulous trail.

Crossing the bridge you have a choice to either go left or straight. I decided to go left. Walking through the woods, I saw this huge boulder.

Following the curvy trail past the boulder, the landscape changes to a boardwalk with an open grass field.

The trail gets more interesting when you walk on the second boardwalk. You get a view of Rogers Brook with lots of greenery in the background. Walking near the end of the boardwalk you will see Rogers Brook merge into Mersey River. The view is so amazing that you need to view the video and additional pictures by clicking on the view photos & video button below.
