Safety at Kejimkujik National Park Seaside
Remember these points to ensure that you have a safe visit and to protect the wildlife at the Seaside;
- The trails are not for bicycles. Out of respect for hikers, please leave your bicycles in the rack at the trail entrance.
- Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times. They can kill or harass wildlife and they may frighten other visitors.
- Keep your scoop handy. Cleaning up after your dog is required.
- Stay on the designated trails to avoid ticks – and also to avoid trampling the vegetation.
- In the open, coastal environment, protection from the sun is important, so a hat and sunscreen are recommended.
- Swimmers are cautioned that the water is cold; dangerous currents and strong undertows may occur.
- Hikers should use caution on rocky headlands. Unusually large waves can sweep people off rocks.
- To approach seals on the beach is dangerous. While black bears are seldom seen, they are often feeding on berries and insects.
- Please respect all wild animals by viewing them only from a distance.
