This the #3 cache of the Skunk Series, The series is numbering 10 in all. The caches are place from Halifax to Kentville, I've been trying to increase the amount of caches along this route. Once again I have placed them in areas most don't know exist or there are no caches there. I hope you enjoy the series and happy caching!!!! The trails are dominated by hemlock trees, some of which are over 300 years old and 80 feet tall. Other trees seen in the network include Yellow Birch, Red Spruce, Beech, and Striped and Mountain Maple. There are also mushrooms in the fall and Lady's Slippers in the spring. There are blueberries, Indian Pipe, Lambkill, lichen and ferns along the way.
HEMLOCK RAVINE PARK Hemlock Ravine is a pleasant 197 acre wilderness get-away within the Regional Municipality. There are 5 trails networked together for a variety of abilities, ages, and time allowances. In the 1780s, Nova Scotia's lieutenant governor John Wentworth resided here. He lent the retreat to Prince Edward in 1794 who landscaped the grounds, including the heartshaped Julie's Pond named after Edward's companion Julie St. Laurent. Edward and Julie returned to England in 1800 and the grounds fell into disrepair. Only the music room remains.
