The White Lake Wilderness Area is a wilderness area located in Nova Scotia, Canada, in Halifax Regional Municipality. Several trails, all owned by the Musquodoboit Trailways Association, pass through it; Gibraltar Rock Loop, White Lake Wilderness Trails, the Musquodoboit Rail Trail, the Bayers Lake Loop, and the Admiral Lake loop.
The Wilderness area was established in the early 1990s as a commitment to protect certain areas of Nova Scotia that displayed unique terrain, fauna and/or flora. In the case of the White Lake Wilderness Area, this flora and fauna is rugged, lake-strewn, conifer forest. Inside the wilderness area are some 350-million-year-old bare granite ridges and knolls, White Spruce and Balsam Fir forests, with some groves of 100-year-old hemlock and the occasional large White Pine. Hardwoods, including White Birch, Red Maple, and Sugar Maple, can be found in some of the more protected valleys.
