Nice hike through woods and along river Did not ford river for final portion as being May 11 the river was knee deep I would expect water levels to lower as season progresses

Short trail, mostly stairs and board walk. Lots of running water and nice falls. Lots of reward for little effort

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.

This trail was stunning! Would absolutely go back!

during winter time the gate was closed, at the start of the golf course. so this meant an extra 2km walk or so. great day on the trails, well worth the hike. I would suggest bringing cleats during winter time!

Easy hike and pretty waterfall!

Great loop for running if you don't mind the incline.

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.

We had to keep a look out for the trail markers as it was not always obvious where to go- but that's what make a good hike! Would definitely do it again :)

VERY poorly signed trail, so keep your wits about you. You have to go up on the rocks for a bit instead of through the forest (which is awesome because the water/rocks are super cool, but also makes it easy to get lost). Otherwise, this hike is awesome!! Tons of forest views and water-adjacent paths. Can be quite difficult at times on the way back up the side of the mountain. I recommend tacking on Laverty Falls trail to make it a longer loop and a more scenic hike!

Easy trail but the nature is just fantastic. Like you are in the Elfen Forest :) waterfalls and moss are unique, cool even on a hottest day.

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

Trail is marked very well. No complaints. A bit more of an incline then I was expecting. I will definitely walk it again.

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

You need land owner permission to access the private road past the white gate. If you do not have their permission it is about 15 km in and back.
We love this trail and try to do it yearly. It is a lovely walk through the woods for the majority of the walk. It is not until the last km or so that you are walking up a steep granite dome. However once you reach the top it is magnificent! We heard loons in all throughout the evening and early morning . It was magical. The light pollution is little, so perfect for night photos. You can see the city of St John and the Bay of Fundy in the distance.

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.

Beautiful day to hike this gem with two kids, three women and three dogs.

It was short but very beautiful in a subtle nature lovers kind of way.

Very nice for what it is, but this is just a walk - very short. Good for getting out of the campground with the youngest of children. Nice mossy waterfall and brook most of the way.

Bring a bathing suit. There are a few places where you can go for a (cold) dip along the way.

Easy trail with a boardwalk that lead to a waterfall. Fun short activity! We went early in the day and we were the only ones there- drove by later in the day and the parking lot was packed!

Nice short walk and family friendly. Rewarded with a nice waterfall
