Kenomee Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"The Kenomee Canyon Trail, opened in 2002, is one of the most uncompromising hikes in the province, requiring five different fordings of streams. Signage is limited, and minimal work was performed to improve the treadway to minimize the impact on the terrain. Kenomee was one of the first (deliberately) wilderness-standard treks developed in Nova Scotia and is a must for any person who wants an outdoor challenge."

"The Kenomee Trail Society has been developing paths in the Cobequid Mountains for several years. In August 2000, the challenging Devil’s Bend Trail opened, and, in 2002, the Kenomee Canyon Trail will permit travel into the Economy Wilderness Protected Area.

This path is probably the most uncompromising wilderness hike in the province. Despite requiring five different stream crossings, including the Economy River below the falls, no bridges have been built. Signage is limited, and the Department of the Environment insisted that minimal work was performed to improve the treadway. The result is one of the few wilderness standard treks in Nova Scotia and a must for any person who wants an outdoor challenge."
