The Becaguimec Nature Trail starts by descending down a small hill to the stream. The trail then follows along the stream going through thick ferns and grasses. After a short distance the trail climbs a small hill and enters the woods. There are several unique bridges and access trails to the fields up the hill. The main trail then climbs the hill to the back corner of a football field. Near this corner there is a rocky cliff and an amazing lookout looking up through the stream valley.
After the lookout the trail descends the hill. At this point the trail splits into many different trails that criss-cross through the woods and follow old roads. Keep to the left and you will eventually come out to the stream on an old road. The trail system is being built by a local volunteer group who is developing mountain bike trails. You will find ramps and many other features throughout the trails for mountain bikes.
After driving through the longest covered bridge, and into the town of Hartland, turn left onto Main Street. Drive for 500 metres and just before the bridge over Becaguimac Stream turn right into a small gravel road. This short road will take you to a small parking area. The trail head is off the end of this parking area.
