This is a great hike. We parked at the new building with the circular parking lot. We then hiked to the Little Salmon River campsites via the McCumber Brook Road access and the Fundy Footpath. Overnight at the campsites and then up/through Little Salmon to Walton Glen Brook and through the Eye of the Needle. Through the gorge and then back up to the car. You should also do the Walton Glen lookout if you haven’t seen it yet. Excellent day or overnight hike.

Very well marked out.. Nice view points along the way..

Difficult to find as map says there is a parking lot. Only a stop on the side of a major highway.

Did this place in the fall. It was beautiful. I can't wait to return next year

Beautiful waterfall! We hiked it during mid-October, making the trail quite wet. Unfortunately, many places along the trail are poorly kept/overgrown, making the trail a little hard to follow. I’d definitely consider this trail more of a “moderate” hike, considering the paths you need to make to adjust for the washed out areas of the trail. The waterfall is definitely worth it, though!

An easy picturesque trail that’s great for a stroll through nature with babbling brooks and waterfalls.

Amazing trip!! A must for every hiker!

This is one one my favourite hikes! two waterfalls to stop at and relax! great spot for a swim!

2nd time across.. wonderful. Hopefully the flooding area around the 8km mark will be fixed by next year

The gate was not opened so we had to walk from there, it was about 30km total. Views were beautiful but we ran out of water which made for a very long hike back down. Make sure to bring lots of water.

Awesome trail with an amazing waterfall. I highly recommend it

We hiked in on Laverty and back out on Moosehorn in June. It was rather warm that day. The hike down on Laverty was no problem, but the hike back up on Moosehorn and rather difficult. Many bugs as well. We would not recommend this for anyone carrying a child in a carrier or otherwise. We also had some issues staying on the trail as it was not marked well. Alltrails map helped keep us on track.

Just finished hiking the trail today from Riverview to Fundy. I was surprised by the amount of overgrowth and blowdowns, however enjoyed the camp sites. It is too bad NB would not invest in this trail more. It could be an excellent tourist attraction to the province. Great views. Recommend it with right equipment. We experienced a 4 degree Cel. night and heavy rain.

My husband and I hiked this trail last summer and found parts are really well taken care of but so much of it NEEDS to be cut back. He just returned from hiking it again this year with two friends and said You almost needed a machete to get through parts. About km 42-44 there are several trees down which makes climbing with a backpack very dangerous. Since this is supposedly one of our provinces best trails, why not use summer students to go through with a chain saw and make it hikeable! It’s really quite pathetic and we don’t feel we can recommend others to hike it until it’s a trail again. Please, please fix this trail! Please! Thank you

great trail. took about 3.5hours with breaks and enjoying the falls.

Great path to run, walk along the city harbour. Well paved and lots of places just to sit and day dream.

Great trail, well worth the hike, spectacular views. Hikes up in the morning, enjoyed lunch on the mountain, only negative..more trail markers needed. Will be doing it again.

Nice trail with some scrambling over rocks when trail hits the river bed - not hard to follow / or find the trail though. Did this combined with laverty falls for a good hike. A few good spots to swim if its hot enough too. Total time was just under 3hrs, with an actual hike time was 2hrs and 5mins as we did lots of sightseeing and picture taking.

We really enjoyed this hike in today. I think it’s a bit more challenging than “easy” especially with 2 dogs and 3,5, and 7 year olds, but we got through no problem. The view was awesome and well worth the trek. I would recommend bringing along sturdy shoes as the trail is washed out in many places, and a bathing suit to enjoy the refreshing water. Definitely going to do this again.

Great little set of falls. Nice and shallow for kids to play around in. Short walk in along a path beside stream. Entrance to path is right at the beginning of roadway. You might think your going into the ditch on the right but there is a trail there.

Really great hike. Not too strenuous until the mountain but very long hike in and back. Bring snacks and lots of water

this trail is over 4 km with lots of ups and downs. very raw with little history blurbs along the way. trail is well marked and we were very pleased to discover this trail.

Gorgeous and strenuous. Have done this one several times in both directions and the hill ascents going west to east are steeper than the other way. Recommend 3-4 days depending on where you plan to start and finish. Strongly recommend buying the guide booklet. Recommend spending one night in Little Salmon River and doing the side trail to Walton Glen Gorge / Eye of the Needle. Avoid camping at Martin Head especially on weekends as it's a bit of a local party spot.

Had a great walk with the kids on this trail. The kids loved the beach section where they could skip some rocks on the water. The trail can be overgrown in some sections but not a major problem.

Fun hike up and down with great rewarding views at the end. Totally worth the effort

One of my favourite trails in Fundy. Love the part where you follow the river to the primitive camping area.

Steep climb but the view makes it all worth while!!!
