Nice scenery. Wasn’t very many people around. Well laid out paths

Great scenery moderate topography. Take a camera ad you will get great shots. Some areas are rugged with exposed tree roots; other areas easy walking. Board walks need repair in some areas. Steps added to make change in elevation easier. Worth the effort to get there. We travelled this trail on Boxing Day with no snow. Will be back in the summer.

If you want a challenge, this is the trail for you. Despite the uphill battles, literally, there are many views that you can only get when hiking along the Fundy Footpath. Before attempting this daunting trek, be sure to have some experience under your belt in smaller, over night adventures.

Stunning view and great for any nature lover!

This was a nice hike to a very high spot. unfortunately the view from the top is becoming obscured due to brush and tree growth. The top needs to be trimmed back some.

come prepared with good hiking shoes and walking sticks, this one is harder than moderate!

The trail head is marked as Dobson Trail with another sign for ambulance reference. There is no cell reception.

Right and the beginning and through out, the trail is very steep. We crossed about 10 mudding vehicles.

The trail was pretty wet with places the tires tracks are dug deep.

The look out isnt indicated, but it is on the right hand side where there is a sort of round clearing. Climb the steep rocks and you will see the view up there!

this is where the Howard Pinacle ends.

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

Great mountain biking trail

Hard to find better views in the area. Recommend parking on the side of the highway instead of taking the dirt road to the trail head.

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.

Best Nova Scotia hike I’ve done to date! Wear suitable hiking shoes, as it can get rocky. Hardest part is the distance, but still not a very difficult hike. Beautiful views that make it worth the trip. There’s a beach you can access (via a piece of rope) not too far from the summit. Good place to go rock hounding for quartz! Strongly recommend if you’re east coast Canada

Pretty awesome east coast hike. A group of us did it in 2 night and 3 days. We stayed at refugee cove the first night, and Carey Brook Cabin the second night. The cabins are very nice compared to a campsite, but comes at a cost (Id recommend them if you are struggling to do distance, or if its cold). There are plenty of rivers to get fresh water from so just bring a water filter. The last part of the trail on the north side past eatonville road is rather dull as it is a walk in a forest with moderate elevation gain. In our group of 4, on the last day I left from Carey Brook Cabin and hiked back to the car at the HQ (20.7KM), while the other 3 waited for me on Eatonville road for a ride. Eatonville road is a gravel road, would recommend a SUV, Jeep, or a truck to drive back there our 2010 corolla did fine though.

Most of the trail is inside the forest, but some times popes out to rock beaches, and once to an open field area. There are some cliff jumping spots near the middle of the trail (10', 40' and probably ~60') jumps, but you have to time the tide just right so you dont get sucked out into the bay. During late August the mosquitos were fairly bad. There were plenty of people on the trail, and there is no sense of danger. Just follow Leave No Trace procedures and you should be fine.

Whitetail and Tippen lot North sections are well groomed as they are used for both hiking and biking. The Tippen lot south section is a challenging climb and descent to the intersection with the Coastal trail. This section is suitable for hiking only. The section of the Coastal trail that completes the loop is moderately difficult and is only suitable for hiking.

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.

Great trail! Steady decline most of the way down, which made for a nice gradual incline on the way up. Did with a non-hiker who did not find it overly challenging. The falls itself is really pretty and the top of the waterfall was fun to explore

Super pretty and fun hike! Did it in 2 days, 3 nights (Seal Cove and Refugee Cove). Hike to refugee cove was beautiful and challenging. Between the two camp sites was a lot more flat than day 1, a long but steady hike. Seal cove to the trailhead is a bit boring, you follow along an old road. Found out later if you ask, there is a shuttle you can pay for and skip the less scenic part of the hike.

Great hike when linked with Moosehorn, well worth the effort.

Great trail with beautiful waterfall and swimming hole at the end. Last 500m to the waterfall is steep with a stream crossing. Well worth the effort and one of my favourite Fundy NP hikes.

Quiet forest trail, very peaceful and worth the hike. Can be done in under an hour. Easy footing. Dog friendly.

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

Excellent hike, not too hard and awesome view at the end. Also opportunity to take side trail to little split and do some rick hunting in beach or just enjoy walking on a beach where later 40-45 feet of water is.

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.
