Very well maintained pathways

We have hiked Taylor's island a number of times. It is impressive from the highway which is how we first stumbled upon it..."let's see if we can get there!" The paths are wide and mostly covered in crushed rock. Good for bikes , strollers, or a gentle walk. Lovely views and a boardwalk out onto the marsh. Tip: When mosquito season hits it is quite buggy, wear big jackets and bring bug repellents.

This is a beautiful park area. We made the complete tour of the outer trail. Lots of geocaches. Only downside are the amount of roads that have been added. Makes for a lot of traffic. There is no indication of this on any maps or websites.

This trail is a great way to get to know the city of Saint John! It has many informative plaques about the history, ecology and other sites along the trail. It leads you right from downtown up to the Reversing Rapids where the river actually runs backwards at high tide. We saw harbor seals and many ocean birds along our walk. We also took a detour up to Fort Howe to get a great view over the city and the harbor.

Love this trail...basically just linking the outer trails at the Nature Park. Close to the city, well maintained and lots to see!
