Interesting but very busy. A lot of caution tape as some areas were listed as dangerous. Lifts are available for handicap or disabled persons. Not more than two hours.

We hired a car and drove the short trip from Moncton. The trails were generally easy although a bit steep in parts. You can actually access the ocean waterfront. Quite beautiful! Highly worth the price of the rental car.

By staying locally overnight we we able to experience the rock both at high tide and at low tide. Fascinating to see the Fundy tides in action. A recommended experience. Coach tours only allow time to see the tide at one phase.

Yes, they offer shuttles from the office to the platform and then it is a short walk from there. Just ask them what time the last shuttle goes to bring you back up.
