Hidden little gem in Fundy. Enjoy hikes by rushing water/waterfalls and this didn’t disappoint. It made for a nice easy walk my 4 year old and I could do together.

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.

This trail is one of my absolute favorites in the park. You can make it a quick overnight camping / backpacking adventure or a day trip. Whichever is your fancy be sure to go for a dip in the point wolfe river at the bottom of the ravine.
If you make it a loop and go towards Marven lake and Goose River be aware that you will walk along the main road for the last km or so making it about a 12km loop. I always prefer a loop to in and back the same way! Marven Lake and Goose River are an old cart path (double wide, loose gravel path)

Bring water shoes if you don't want your hikers wet for the return trip. The rocks are sharp and tricky to navigate without footwear. The NW side of the Foster brook trail is a steep ascent if you choose the loop.

Been there in search of three caves.
Found two along Rockpile Road called Howes cave.
Won't disappoint but bring lots of water cause the refueling area are scarce.

Not the best trail in the park since over 1/3 is the road leading to the boat drop off.
Trail is often closed for renovations over the years it seems.
Have been sticking to the regular trails from the park but for those of you competitionists then enjoy.

Great trail down to Hopewell Rocks. Gorgeous scenery at end of trail.

The tallest waterfall in New Brunswick and so beautiful! There's a fee of $10 per vehicle but it's worth the money.

Awesome little trail and if it weren’t for so many of is tourists, it’d be incredibly peaceful! I can see why reviewers before me gave it such a good score.

A good little hike to a nice, peaceful beach (depending on tide) and loops to follow a stream on the back half. Definitely worth the stop if you’re in the park, and right near Matthews Head Trail if you’re interested in doing both, OR, you can start the Coastal trail here as well.

This was a quick, easy hike and the views are wonderful.

fun park around the reservoir with multiple trails for hiking

Worth the stop if I’m the area, especially at low tide.

Easy trail but worth the time.

This trails goes farther up the river than described here. I believe total there and back from the fork is 16.4 km parts of it were a little more complex as you had to watch your footing. Overall a great trail really makes you feel like you are in the wilderness. A few river crossings but a rope was provided for you and the water was very refreshing while hiking.

beautiful trail. quiet and peaceful

One of my favourites! Great for trail running, and hiking.

Awesome hike with an amazing waterfall at the end. The trail follows a constant downhill grade right to the falls (2.2 miles). It gets a little steep at the end but still quite manageable. Not too difficult as long as you are agile and somewhat in shape. Once you reach the stream, keep going down and towards the left. (This part is a bit tricky but not too bad). After a couple minutes, you will reach the waterfall! The hike back is all uphill. At a steady pace, this entire trip (including a 25 minute break at the falls) took us a total of 1 hour 50 minutes (4.4 miles) Totally worth it!

Great trail for beginners and well seasoned hikers alike.

Great hike! Take your time and enjoy the views. Some steep sections but overall a wonderful 5km hike in the woods.

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.

Not for the faint of heart, it’s a fair trek in and out and not to be underestimated. It’s one of my favorites partly because of the waterfall, but it’s definitely not an easy hike.

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

Great trail with beautiful scenery!!

Not much of a “hike” but short and sweet and absolutely beautiful during the golden hour.

Hiked on a grey, Warm May 10 day There was fog on the water. Hike is actually 5.5km not 4.5 as shown in park maps Well defined trail, impossible to get lost There were a number of small streams with little waterfalls throughout the hike which was nice Much of the hike is through the woodsbut is interesting between the varied fauna and mixture of flat portions and sloped areas Trail in good condition The highlight is the shoreline vistas which are plentiful Enjoyable hike which I did with my little dog Joey Would do the hike again
