Uniacke Estate Trails
From Halifax take highway 101 towards Annapolis Valley for 15 km to exit 3. Turn left from exit 3 onto highway #1 and drive 9 km, through Mount Uniacke to Estate entrance on the left side of the road - follow the sign from parking lot.
From Windsor take highway 101 towards Halifax. Take exit 4 onto onto highway #1 and drive east to the Estate entrance on the right.
There are 7 trails that can be combined to make a variety of trips. These trails are the Barrens Trail, the Drumlin Field Trail, the Hot House Hill trail, the Lake Martha Loop, the Post Road trail, the Red Spruce Trail (to the top of Mount Uniacke) and the Wetland Trail.
Leaving from the parking lot, one of the longer loop routes starts off on the Post Road trail. Take this trail almost to its end where you turn left onto the Wetland Trail. Follow the wetland trail down to Thompson Lake. From the lake the trail heads back towards the parking lot. Soon you come to a junction with the Barrens trail. Take the Barrens trail. Almost immediately after starting out on the Barrens trail the trail crosses Black Brook. There is no bridge and in high water this can be a problem. Brave hikers can jump the brook in a single bound, but children or shorter folks will probably have to turn around or decide to wade. About a kilometer after the brook crossing, the Barrens trail meets up with the Hothouse Hill trail. Take this trail to the right to head back to the parking lot.
After completing the circuit listed above, you can also take the Red Spruce Trail to the top of Mount Uniacke (a towering 210m high!) or walk the shores of Lake Martha on the Lake Martha Loop and the Drumlin field trail.
