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

We hiked this trail last year just after it opened from wildfires. We loved being the only ones on the trial with the exception of seeing two people the first day. There were several places where we hiked and could NOT find the trail, which was disappointing but we struggled on and found our way. Several spots were poorly taken care of but so much of it was excellently cared for! The lake was beautiful and had a nice spot for our tent. Definitely worth the time to hike this trail. Took us 4.5 days but we hiked right to headquarters in Fundy National Park. My husband and two friends are hiking it again this fall so I guess that tells what we thought of it! Try it if you’re in for a challenge!
