Length: 29.5 mi • Est. Multi-day
This trail is a strenuous multi-day hike up steep and remote terrain with rewarding views of the Bay of Fundy and untouched wilderness. It can be done both directions, but recommendable to start in Alma (Fundy National Park Goose River Trail) and end in St. Martin's, so you get the hardest part done first. Get someone to drop you off in Alma at the entrance to the Goose River trail and park a vehicle in St. Martin's the day before (9.50$ to enter the park). Your car will be looked after as it is next to an information center and in a gated area. Go into the information center and tell them what you plan to do and they will give you a pink ticket for your vehicle so it does not get toad. Please register before you start hiking the footpath, and when you are finished for your safety. - You can register your hike here: https://fundytrailparkway.com/location/fundy-footpath/ - info@fundytrailparkway.com (more information) - 1 -866- 386-3987 Careful preparation should be done before embarking on this trail.

This trail starts near the group camping parking lot at the end of the Loggiecroft road. The trail runs alongside the group campground for a while and then follows the meanders of the Rankin Brook. At the end of the Black River peninsula the view is outstanding. It is an interesting trail with stands of various tree species enhancing the scenery along the way. The trail runs along the shore in a few locations, offering a view of the estuary. In season, several bird species share neighbouring habitats. Ospreys and bald eagles can sometimes be seen diving for fish. Not many people hike this trail, but it’s worth exploring! This trail is marked for snowshoeing during the winter.Show more
