“A nice spot”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We visited French Fort Cove after looking up attractions in the Miramichi. The trails were well-kept and it was a beautiful walk. The signage isn't very good though, so make sure you can find your way back using your phone. We would probably go back for another walk, it was nice to get out of the downtown.

“Wonderful place to walk and explore”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Great walking trails and well-kept. There is a great history behind this site including the tale of the Headless Nun. Well worth the visit and the kids will have fun in the playground.

Pond hockey, the headless nun, the trails! This place is great all year round! The prime minister even came to drop the puck for the pond hockey tournament a few years ago.

“Great spot for mountain biking”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

French Fort Cove has some great mountain bike trails. There are several trail maps posted but they are not located at all the junctions so it can be a bit tricky to find your way. There are many trails rated 'easy' which are great for beginner mountain bikers and then many that are rated as difficult (there aren't any that are intermediate). We stuck to the easy trails and the views are wonderful and they were just challenging enough for someone who is new to the sport (only had to walk my bike a few times). We visited in November and with the leaves down you can really see a long way into the surrounding valleys. There are two main parking lots, the one by the playground is the best spot to park for accessing the mountain bike trails (there are also many hiking trails which are not suitable for biking).

“Great walks”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Good popular place for a walk, from a walk around the lake to a hike for 6km

Do take appropriate footwear, it is fairly rugged in places

We did the 3 km walk with a seven year old with no problems
