Fundy National Park of Canada encompasses some of the last remaining wilderness in southern New Brunswick. Here, the conifer dominated Caledonia Highlands roll down to meet the fog-generating Bay of Fundy. The tidal fluctuation of the Bay of Fundy is the highest in the world. Watch fishing boats come and go to the rhythm of the bay. Inland, explore lush forests and deep stream valleys. Entrance Gates: May 16 to October 13

Hidden little gem in Fundy. Enjoy hikes by rushing water/waterfalls and this didn’t disappoint. It made for a nice easy walk my 4 year old and I could do together.

Fantastic Trail. Started at Big Salmon River, and finished in Fundy National Park, and that took us 3.5 days. Trail is well marked with white blazes although white moss on many trees made it interesting at times :). Lots of ascents and descents as you successively go from brook at sea-level to hill-top over and over throughout the journey. Great views and significant hiking in the woods to shield from the ocean winds. Next time I intend to try reverse direction.

This trail is one of my absolute favorites in the park. You can make it a quick overnight camping / backpacking adventure or a day trip. Whichever is your fancy be sure to go for a dip in the point wolfe river at the bottom of the ravine.
If you make it a loop and go towards Marven lake and Goose River be aware that you will walk along the main road for the last km or so making it about a 12km loop. I always prefer a loop to in and back the same way! Marven Lake and Goose River are an old cart path (double wide, loose gravel path)

Bring water shoes if you don't want your hikers wet for the return trip. The rocks are sharp and tricky to navigate without footwear. The NW side of the Foster brook trail is a steep ascent if you choose the loop.

Awesome little trail and if it weren’t for so many of is tourists, it’d be incredibly peaceful! I can see why reviewers before me gave it such a good score.

A good little hike to a nice, peaceful beach (depending on tide) and loops to follow a stream on the back half. Definitely worth the stop if you’re in the park, and right near Matthews Head Trail if you’re interested in doing both, OR, you can start the Coastal trail here as well.

Loved it . Good hike !

Worth the stop if I’m the area, especially at low tide.

Easy trail but worth the time.

This trails goes farther up the river than described here. I believe total there and back from the fork is 16.4 km parts of it were a little more complex as you had to watch your footing. Overall a great trail really makes you feel like you are in the wilderness. A few river crossings but a rope was provided for you and the water was very refreshing while hiking.

Awesome hike with an amazing waterfall at the end. The trail follows a constant downhill grade right to the falls (2.2 miles). It gets a little steep at the end but still quite manageable. Not too difficult as long as you are agile and somewhat in shape. Once you reach the stream, keep going down and towards the left. (This part is a bit tricky but not too bad). After a couple minutes, you will reach the waterfall! The hike back is all uphill. At a steady pace, this entire trip (including a 25 minute break at the falls) took us a total of 1 hour 50 minutes (4.4 miles) Totally worth it!

Really good trail for an easy and quick run

Great hike! Take your time and enjoy the views. Some steep sections but overall a wonderful 5km hike in the woods.

Amazing trail! Takes you through a variety of ecosystems which include multiple kinds of forest stands. On the way there is mostly down hill , which makes the hike out a little more challenging and uphill. Beautiful views at the forks !

Not for the faint of heart, it’s a fair trek in and out and not to be underestimated. It’s one of my favorites partly because of the waterfall, but it’s definitely not an easy hike.

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

Not much of a “hike” but short and sweet and absolutely beautiful during the golden hour.

Hiked on a grey, Warm May 10 day There was fog on the water. Hike is actually 5.5km not 4.5 as shown in park maps Well defined trail, impossible to get lost There were a number of small streams with little waterfalls throughout the hike which was nice Much of the hike is through the woodsbut is interesting between the varied fauna and mixture of flat portions and sloped areas Trail in good condition The highlight is the shoreline vistas which are plentiful Enjoyable hike which I did with my little dog Joey Would do the hike again

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

Easy trail through woods At the end are extensive stairs decending into narrow valley with granite spires which is uncommon Would be a decent young family hike Brook at end is nice but ordinary

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!

great view!! well worth it

Cool trail,goes thru the forest and along a bluff on the coast overlooking Fundy with views of Squaw point. Lots of flowers.

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.

Great trail, well marked. Beautiful Falls!

great place to go with kids
