This trail is not for the faint of heart! The first 1/3 of the trail is on an old logging road now covered in large pieces of crushed rock. Challenging with hiking boots - would not attempt with sneakers or sandals... Once off the road the trail is very enjoyable. There is one steep decline followed by a steep incline. The return trip more challenging but we were tired by then. Make sure the tide is out as inlet makes a beautiful beach to rest and eat at. I will do it again, but will aim for a cooler day

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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

We walked the section from Long Beach to Seely Beach along the beach then took the footpath back to where were began. Do not attempt the beach walk if you have less than an hour and a quarter! The Bay of Fundy tides are not a force to tempt. They are strong, swift and you can get stuck unaware if you are not vigilant! That said the rock outcrops are magnificent.
We walked back along the footpath the hardwood and softwood, mosses and lichens, Brooks and waterways were all such a treat. The climbs and descents (yes plural ;) are steady and hiking poles are recommended as well as sturdy footwear.
There will be a few river or brook crossings.
Take shoes off or get wet. Two spots were knee deep. There are two Fundy Biosphere Reserve Amazing Places on the trail as an added incentive

Beautiful trail, my favorite in the province. The most difficult part about this hike is the steepness getting to and from the river. Amazing views while hiking the river. If you go in the spring/after it rains bring waterproof shoes. If you go in the later-mid summer bring your swimsuit! There is the perfect swimming spots, especially right below moosehorn falls there is a cliff to jump off of!

We did this in 3 days but it was crazy hard and I was incredibly sick the last day. We had bad weather also but for some reason I still loved it.

I hiked the trail as part of the fundy footpath. hiked it with a friend over 3 days. we camped of various beaches throughout. not sure I would consider the trail easy as it is pretty steep in places but the climbs are well worth it once you see the views.
