Blomidon Provincial Park is positioned on the top of a massive183 m (600 ft) cliff overlooking the Minas Basin and dominating the entire skyline. The brick red of the sandstone hillside is mirrored in the broad mud flats that are exposed by the retreat of the highest tides in the world, an elevation change between tides of 12 m/yd. The views of the Minas Basin and the Parrsboro shores are breathtaking, and one of the area’s principal visitors’ attractions. The 759 ha (1,875 acres) park includes 72 campsites, and picnic areas both at the top and at the bottom of the hill. Blomidon Provincial Park was established in 1965.

Not bad. Some scenic lookoffs on the Eastern trail portions but there are long stretches of relatively uninspiring trail. Nice dayhike and picnic park though.
