Cross from Grand Manan at end thoroughfare rd on low tide. You can either walk the perimeter or the road through the middle of the island. At the end of the road on the Southern end there is a red trail to the East that is well maintained and makes a nice loop. Either stay the night or hike over 3 hours before low tide and be back before 3 hours after the lowest tide.

Some road walking on the little fishing village secluded island. Some beach and rock scrambling as well. It is a loop, but we did not complete the whole loop. 17+ km, probably 20-22 if whole loop completed.

Absolutely gorgeous! Strenuous at points given the drastic ups and downs but well worth the climbs. And every spot to camp is a 10 out 10 for sure. Everything from sandy beaches to riverside coves.

Sweet view's with lots of ups and downs.

Great trail ! Awesome workout

Fantastic Trail. Started at Big Salmon River, and finished in Fundy National Park, and that took us 3.5 days. Trail is well marked with white blazes although white moss on many trees made it interesting at times :). Lots of ascents and descents as you successively go from brook at sea-level to hill-top over and over throughout the journey. Great views and significant hiking in the woods to shield from the ocean winds. Next time I intend to try reverse direction.

Lovely day hike and overnight on rural island.
It is easy to spend the day watching the tides, bird life and rock hounding.
Bring all your drinking water with you and food as the island does not currently have a store or place to stock up. Locals are extremely friendly!
It makes a loop, but we didn't record the last section.

Great hike, fairly easy starting out then gets a little moderate with some uphill climbing. 2 beautiful bridges near the beginning. Some muddy sections and a rope to go over a section. It is longer than 9. 1/2 km as the sign near the end says 5.5 km (done) and 250 m to the end so we would say we did at least 11km round trip.

This trail is not for the faint of heart! The first 1/3 of the trail is on an old logging road now covered in large pieces of crushed rock. Challenging with hiking boots - would not attempt with sneakers or sandals... Once off the road the trail is very enjoyable. There is one steep decline followed by a steep incline. The return trip more challenging but we were tired by then. Make sure the tide is out as inlet makes a beautiful beach to rest and eat at. I will do it again, but will aim for a cooler day

Solid 4-5 hour hike. The end/half way point is a great spot to enjoy lunch. Good variety of hills and casual hiking. There and back is actually a bit more than 10kms opposed to the 9.5km the app suggests.

A beautiful coastal hike.

The Fundy Footpath is recognized as one of the longest stretches of uninhabited coastline in eastern North America. The trek includes 41km from Big Salmon River to the western boundary of Fundy National Park, and an additional 8km through the park to finish. This rugged 50km hike takes you through a dozen ravines from sea level to 250m.

One of the best hikes in FNP. I did this trail as part of the Fundy Footpath in 2010, then again in 2017 I included it in a hike to Goose River Falls and back.

Nice, flat, easy stroll through the woods. Mostly heavily forested (no views) except for the exits to the beach. Very quiet. A few side trails in the area if you want to do a longer walk. For those bringing dogs be aware that the trails themselves are dog-friendly, but the beach area has signs posted "no dogs allowed". So, unfortunately you won't be able to take pooch down for a paw-dip in the water.

Beautiful hike, spent the night on the beach. Undergoing some construction currently- looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

It's an easy walk with lots of views of the water, shoreline, and beaches

Best trail you're gonna find in the maritimes outside of Newfoundland hands down. Very strenuous though.

A tough hike that allows you to feel like you've earned every view and every campsite.

My girlfriend and I backpacked planned on taking 4 days to finish the trail (Wolf Pointe to Interactive Center), yet finished in 3. We camped at Goose Creek the 1st night and Little Salmon the 2nd. We noticed that every camping spot seemed like a great option.

I could go on at length discussing strategy for this feat but there is plenty of literature provided by the Fundy Hiking Trail Association (http://fundyhikingtrails.com/). I would recommend getting there guide as it also helps them out.

for those of us not in great shape. This was not easy. but i would do it again.

We walked the section from Long Beach to Seely Beach along the beach then took the footpath back to where were began. Do not attempt the beach walk if you have less than an hour and a quarter! The Bay of Fundy tides are not a force to tempt. They are strong, swift and you can get stuck unaware if you are not vigilant! That said the rock outcrops are magnificent.
We walked back along the footpath the hardwood and softwood, mosses and lichens, Brooks and waterways were all such a treat. The climbs and descents (yes plural ;) are steady and hiking poles are recommended as well as sturdy footwear.
There will be a few river or brook crossings.
Take shoes off or get wet. Two spots were knee deep. There are two Fundy Biosphere Reserve Amazing Places on the trail as an added incentive

Nice trail. Not too difficult. Well marked. A little muddy
