Kejimkujik, pronounced catch-'im-a-coo-chick, is a Provincial Park in Nova Scotia. The locals shortened the name to Keji, so no worries if you can't pronounce it. This relatively easy-riding motorcycle route takes you through the park's gorgeous scenery and lakes; a doable 72 mi (115 km) in about 2 hours.
Start the motorbike ride in Liverpool, a small community of 2,600 people located in Queens County on the Atlantic Ocean's shores in Nova Scotia. Liverpool is the start of two scenic drive routes: the Lighthouse Drive on Trunk Route 3 and the Kejimkujik Scenic Drive. Ride Northwest on the Trunk 8 to get the route started. For more information on what to see, where to eat and where to sleep in Liverpool see: http://www.queens.ca/

From Liverpool to Kejimkujik National Park, ride through the middle of Southwestern Nova Scotia. Keji is a world of natural and cultural wonders, in fact, it's the only Parks Canada site which is designated both a National Park and a National Historic Site.
Nature is at her best in Keji, with camping available in beautiful wooded and remote wilderness. Common Loons are aplenty. If you stay a while, you'll discover some historic canoe routes and experience First Nations Mi'kmaq petroglyphs. You can also swim in the warm turquoise waters of Keji Lake where you'll find white sand and maybe a seal or two basking on nearby rocks.

From Kejimkujik to Annapolis Royal the road continues on the Trunk 8 and has a few turns leading to the Southern shore of the Bay of Fundy.
Annapolis Royal is a small town of l500 people located on the shore of the Annapolis Basin. It's worth a look around; it has a deep history of war conflict, including a staring role in the American Revolution. It happens to be the most raided place in Canada having been attacked 13 times. For some in- depth history on Annapolis Royal and information on what to see, where to eat and where to sleep see: http://www.annapolisroyal.org/
Annapolis Royal is also a part of the the Evangeline Trail:
The Kejimkujik Scenic drive is truly that, scenic. It's filled with history and nice roads. Plan about 2 hours or 72 mi (115 km) of good motorcycle roads. This is the perfect route for the history buff or anyone who likes spectacular views. Enjoy the ride! EatSleepRIDE.
