Kejimkujik Seaside Trail Re-Construction

In September 2019 Hurricane Dorian caused in widespread damage to the iconic coastal trail at the Kejimkujik Seaside, with multiple sections suffering significant erosion and washout from the tidal surge and wave action. The objective of this project is to design and construct a new, climate change-resilient trail network at Kejimkujik Seaside to replace the damaged trail system. The re-design of the trail network with take into account future Visitor Experience for the site and incorporate proper drainage, materials, water crossings and routing to add long-term resiliency to the network. The project will be reviewed via a Basic Impact Assessment.
