This summer I have been trying to get outside more to enjoy the warm weather and to explore nature. So I visited a couple of trails and conservation areas nearby that I haven’t been to yet. One of them was Lemoine Point Conservation Area in Kingston.
Lemoine Point is a 15 minute drive from downtown Kingston, located between the Kingston Airport and Collins Bay. It is made up of 136 hectares of land, and has about 11km of hiking trails. Lemoine Point is a quiet and relaxing place, considering that it is located in the middle of the city.
Lemoine Point is open year-round, from 7:30am until sunset. Summer activities include hiking, cycling, swimming and fishing, while in the winter it is possible to go cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
You will also encounter some wildlife in the area, such as ducks, squirrels and chipmunks (the usual).
