Kejimkujik’s name comes from the Mi’kmaw word Kejimkuji’jk meaning little fairies.
Kejimikujik National Park and National Historic Site of Canada is in Maitland Bridge a 2.5 hour drive from Halifax, 2.5 from Yarmouth and a 1.5 hour drive from Digby.
Our favourite time to hike Keji is the fall, the landscape evolves into a new view everyday.
Trails vary in length from 0.2 km to 3.5 km, offering something for everyone.
Kejimkujik offers volunteer experiences through the Southwest Nova Volunteer Program.
This is a group of organizations, Parks Canada, Friends of Keji, Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute and Bird Studies Canada and individuals are working to help species at risk and enhance environmental conservation.
