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...more

Worth the time to stop and take in a few km! Leave time to walk the suspension bridge. Walk as little or as far as you want. Lots of places to drive and check out the view if you aren’t up to hiking that day....More
When taking a trip along the Fundy Trail, make sure to stop at the Interpretive Centre. Parking is free and plentiful. Take time to watch the short movie on the history of the trail, visit the well-stocked gift shop, or just hang out on the...More
You can loose yourself on the Fundy Trail, in a very good way. There are so many treasures along the route waiting for you to discover. Hike down to Melvins Beach, walk across a suspension bridge, picnic on Long Beach as you watch the World's...More
My wife visited the Fundy Trail Parkway twice in 2018, September 1st by ourselves, and October 19th with a visitor from England. This is a beautiful site with many stops offering magnificent scenery, and in the summer, well equipped with toilets and picnic tables. Truly...More
It was foggy the day were visited but it was still a high point of our trip to New Brunswick. Our hiking days are over but the drive was excellent. The map you are given describes each stop and also indicates where bathrooms (outdoor) are....More
What an amazing spot! We spent most of the day and it wasn't nearly enough. I can't believe it took a visit from an out of town friend to get us to finally come back to the park. It's about a 2 hour drive from...More
We managed to see only a glimpse of this spectacular trail. Our guide was Beverly , the daughter of Mitchell Franklin who along with Frank McKenna had a vision for this area. It truly is spectacular with waterfalls, plant and animal life ,hiking and walking...More
We practically had the parkway to ourselves in early October because it was a rainy day. Would love to return in the future when the road expands. Looks like there are many wonderful hiking opportunities. Many picnic tables with awesome views. Lots of places to...More
I would consult resources at the cruise ship terminal in Saint John in regards to transportation to this site. They do offer bus transportation at some times to the caves area in St Martins. I am not sure if they go as far... More
I would consult resources at the cruise ship terminal in Saint John in regards to transportation to this site. They do offer bus transportation at some times to the caves area in St Martins. I am not sure if they go as far as the Fundy Trail which is just beyond the caves area.

The Fundy Trail parkway reaches up to Walton Glen (30km). The province is beginning the process of paving the connector roads towards Sussex (end of 2020 completion date) and then Alma (end of 2021 completion date) so it is... More
The Fundy Trail parkway reaches up to Walton Glen (30km). The province is beginning the process of paving the connector roads towards Sussex (end of 2020 completion date) and then Alma (end of 2021 completion date) so it is not accessible from that side. We hope to see you soon!

Not yet. They should be connected to Sussex by 2019, and Moncton by 2021. The park authority had completed it to the edge of their land, they are waiting for the Province to complete the necessary road connections.
We will be in saint John's NB in August and are looking for the best Lobster restaurant - we are planning to rent a Car and drive around the area - specifically the Fundy Trail Parkway. Any suggestions for the Lobster and attractions to see will be very much appreciated.

Just returned from a short vacation in beautiful NB/NS. The country/province is simply spectacular and I would highly recommend this for a ‘get away from it all’ feeling! Day-1: Drove from the Boston area to Saint Martins in NB (around 7.5 hours with breaks). Make sure to cross the Canadian border at the new crossing in Calais (nice place with zero wait time; once in Canada, you are already on highway 101). Stayed at the Salmon River B&B – good, comfortable place on the Bay of Fundy;...More

Bay of Fundy Vacation (3 Replies)
We are planning a 4 day stop at Fundy National Park on our way to Newfoundland and I had a few questions concerning attractions nearby. We are 2 adults travelling with 2 teenagers and love to do outdoor activities. We are planning to stay 1 night in St. John, 2 nights in Alma and 1 night in Shediac. Is it worthwhile to visit the Fundy trail Parkway if we are already planning to see Fundy National Park and Hopewell Rocks? How cold is the water in the Bay of Fundy in mid-july? Is it confortable...More

Bay of fundy is quite cold. I grew up very close to the bay of fundy and visit often and I've only ever seen people go in up to their knees, and the occasional dog swimming. One exception is tidal bore rafting as it's done on a river that the bay of fundy pushes into and the river water is warmer. The beaches by shediac will be much warmer.
