At Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, towering 185-meter (600-foot) cliffs rise from the Bay of Fundy while the world’s highest tides lap at their base. Cape Chignecto is a 4,200-hectare natural environment park on a dramatic coastal peninsula. The park features 29 kilometres (18 miles) of pristine coastline, some of Nova Scotia’s most significant geological features, deep valleys, sheltered coves, rare plants, remnant old growth forest, scenic views, and a rich cultural heritage. We offer wilderness camping in secluded coves and ravines, while a spectacular coastal hiking trail leads visitors along high cliffs and deep valleys. Because Cape Chignecto is a wilderness hiking park, there are no drive-up camping sites.

We were pressed for time so just had time for the 5km trial which we were able to do in an hour and 15 minutes. Day was overcast but warm. Had walking sticks. Trial was well marked and maintained. Mosquitos were not too bad. Some nice lookouts. Not too strenuous .

I hiked the three-day loop staying in cabins (Big Bald and Eatonville). The highlight of the loop is the cliffs on the west coast. You can sleep in tents or cabins. I adore this loop hike and have done it three times now. It is true that 90% of the hike is in the forest, but the 10% that offers... More

It's well worth the drive on the long and winding, unpaved road to Cape D'Or to stand on the cliff-tops overlooking the Bay of Fundy, the rips below and the view back toward Cape Chignecto, past the golden cliffs that give the Cape it's name, The Golden Cape. The entire Parrsboro Shore is spectacularly beautiful and this is a powerful... More

Yesterday, September 27th, was a beautiful day to experience the trail system at Cape Chignecto Provincial Park. Phil and I had never been there before and really did not know too much about it, other than there was a trail system with one being approximately 50 km in length. Always looking for a challenge we decided that we would try... More

Having backpacked the iconic West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island, and the lesser-known East Coast Trail on the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland, Cape Chignecto’s coastal trail was a huge disappointment. Over our four days on the trail, we were probably getting views of the coast about 10% of the time. The trail itself is good with a decent amount of... More

Do not take the Eatonville to Seal Cove hike. It is only in the woods and the scenery never changes. The trail is very muddy with lots of slippery tree roots. We never made it to Seal Cove as the scenery was just too boring. I would try to find another hike that goes along the cliff with ocean views.... More
