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.

This place is an absolute must visit !!!! It's set far off the main drag but a nice scenic tour if you're that type of person ! The park is huge and driving in along Apple River Rd and Eatonville Rd there are many different areas to pull off and set up camp for the day (no overnight camping signs).... More

We walked both the Three Sisters and the Squally Point hikes, in about 3 hours. We were careful to be done and out by 1.5 hours before high tide, to assure no delays on driving out on the road to Apple River. We felt Squally Point was more scenic.

From the Cape Chignecto Provincial Park you can oversee the Bay of Fundy. The tides are enormous (pls keep this in mind when walking the beaches), the forest is comfortably to walk and the trails are marked. It's a laid back place and beautiful in September or during the winter time.

This is a perfect place for experienced hikers as well as casual walkers. Well maintained trails. Bring a picnic lunch and sit on the beach for spectacular views.

I only had time for the Advocate Harbour part of this park, but the park staff gave me a map and told me there was a nice walk on the beach. They were right --- the beach is strewn with large red rocks that are really stunning. You can walk the beach for miles, at least at low tide, very... More

We drove down the coast road from Joggins (about an hour) and followed the hiking signs into Eatonville entrance. It is a long gravel/dirt road but stick with it. We were told that extreme high tide there could be water on the road but this was not an issue for us. This entrance was closed but there is parking by... More

You can walk from the driftwood retreat at low tide to the red rocks. There are some nice views if you go to the top, but I think better views from the beach. However, my kids had loads of fun taking the hike up and finding little frogs hopping about it everywhere. A beautiful area

Nice trails! Very well kept. We went all the way to Mill Brook. I would call it strenuous because of one area that has a very steep hill, but otherwise, a nice moderate hike. It's would be smart to check on the tides and try to time the hike to return on the beach side trail! That's what we did... More

We wish we can explore Cape Chignecto Provincial park more that 1 day. It was our first time there and there are many thing to see. We came from Moncton, it's about 2 hours drive to get there. We were kayaking for 5 hours round trip and have about 1 hour break in between. When we left the place our... More
