Type: Trails, Outdoors
Activities: Driving, Hiking
Owner description: The ultimate Bay of Fundy eco-adventure. Drive the paved parkway that hugs the coastal cliffs. Lace up your hiking boots and hop on your mountain bike and explore the trails. These connect to paths and stairways which lead to pristine beaches and tumbling waterfalls, Precambrian rocks, 250m cliffs that tower at the water's edge. If that doesn't take your breath away, just check out the view - the spectacular, stunning Bay of Fundy. The trail has been carved out of the Fundy Escarpment, one of the last remaining coastal wilderness areas between Florida and Labrador. Most of the elements of the Fundy ecosystem exist within this area including the dramatic Fundy tides. At the Interpretive Centre you'll find original artifacts and old photos from a bygone era, when logging, fishing and shipbuilding were an economic mainstay of this region. Guided tours to Hearst Lodge and Great Day Experiences for the family or groups are available. The Interpretive Centre also provides a snack bar, restroom facilities and a small retail outlet. Above the Centre, there is a suspension bridge across the sparkling waters of the Big Salmon River and the beginning of the wilderness Fundy Footpath.

This is one of the most beautiful trails in Canada, better than the CAbot trail. It takes a few hours to really get out and look at each look out. Love the interpretation center at Salmon river. YOu feel you know the history of the area. It would be nice if guides were available for the whole park.

My second time here, its a bit longer now, which is great. This lovely 16km drive holds splendid views. Feel part of the history listening to the Salmon River video and learning about life on Salmon River. The settlement there is all but gone except for the photos. Breathtaking views. You can walk, hike, bike or drive this trail. Wonderful... More

We reserved a rental car just minutes from our cruise ship and spent the day enjoying the Trail. Even with the GPS, the trail was initially a challenge to find--just beyond St. Maarten's. We found very few others along the Parkway, which is very well tended and incredibly scenic. We wouldn't have wanted to spend the day any other way!

The Trail is great - many pullouts, all with information related to area you are in. Be sure to go to see the waterfalls. Great location if you are a hiker or biker paths everywhere for you. The entrance to the Trail starts in St. Martins and you drive through/past two covered bridges (picture op), stop at the caves and... More

It is best to drive for the majority and stay on the road and stop at every check point to view the scenery. We took a trail that was very closed in and secluded and unless you enjoy tree’s and forest setting it can be less enjoyable and take away from the experience. You can easily spend 3-6 hours in...

Out of the way with very few tourists. Highly recommended for hikers and bikers. Breathtaking views. Rope bridge and swimming in the river.

The trail is well organized, very nice possibilities either to stroll around or to walk for more kms. Very Nice views. Hopewell rocks is really worth a visit.

This is the best little haven you could ever go to see breath taking views and experience the power of the ocean. The tides are unbelievable and the kayaking is like nothing you have ever done before. I almost want to keep it to myself because it has been my favorite place to be since I was a child. The...

This 11 km long, low speed roadway is a perfect area to see some of the most spectacular views of the entire Bay of Fundy area. It runs between St. Martins, NB and Fundy National Park and is almost breath-taking in some of the scenes you see as the roadway winds along the coast. There are lots of parking areas... More
