The nature trail loops around Mooneys Pond and is well-maintained and includes a floating dock.  Bridges and boardwalks are about 1/3 of the trail. Part of this trail is wheelchair accessible with four observation decks and fishing platforms. It is a popular fishing spot and a semi-natural rearing pond for Atlantic salmon. There is an interpretive centre with information on Atlantic Salmon and picnic area. It is an excellent location for bird watching and photography. The section of the trail at Anderson's Pool near Peakes is wheelchair accessible if entered from that end.  The nature trail originates off the Confederation Trail and leads to the wheelchair accessible activity areas over 600 metres distance.
