Not a difficult hike and the results are so rewarding. Crazy beautiful views, and unlike any hike we've ever done. Highly recommend!!!

This trail is out in the middle of nowhere but well worth the drive. We hiked this trail in Late September and almost had the place to ourselves. Someone had made really nice walking sticks for you to use on the hike that has some elevation climb at the start but flattens out once you meet the ridge. There are... More

Some of the best views on this side of the Bay of Fundy. The trail is fairly level with some gradual elevation changes. There is no where to get water. Keep your dogs on leash because there are very high cliffs with loose edges and there have been a number of dogs killed over the years. The beach path is... More

We make it a point to walk this trail every year in the fall and always enjoy. A great way to spend an afternoon with family or friends. Anyone of any age should be able to make this hike as long as they are able to walk on there own. It's a pretty good hike so you would need to... More

The hike is fairy easy; wide, some roots and mud, slight elevation gain. The hike ends with an open grassy area with good views. If you are looking to have a picnic plan about 1.5 - 2 hours to get to get to the good view at the end. If it's not windy then lucky you, enjoy. If it is... More

This hike is 5 miles one way, but it doesn't seem that long. It is a pretty easy hike, with some roots on the trail and some muddy spots. There is a bit of climbing, but not bad. The view at the end it totally amazing and so worth the hike! It is very, very windy out on the open... More

I went with a non hiker and she had no problems with the 10 miles. I just hope the average person reads the warnings and carries plenty of water. This hike is mainly through the forest and finally the reward of the Bay of Fundy.

Try to start early so you can spend time at the Split to view both low and high tides. Bring food and drink.

I most say the scenery at the Cape is just worth the trail. The trail has other little hidden lookouts but none as gorgeous as the main one. The web site of the trail says it is of moderate difficulty, although there were families with young children hiking that day. All in all a very beautiful and relaxing day out... More

very busy trail but wonderful hike. Be ready for a long hike - minimum 4 hours - 7.5 km in to a spectacular view. Couldn't believe the number of hikers but at least it made you feel there were people around should anything happen.
