Great trail in excellent condition. Met several folks camping and a dozen people on bikes. Beach is beautiful. Takes just over 2 hours each way if you keep a steady pace.

This is an awesome trail for more serious mountain bikers, I absolutely loved it. Lots of hill climbing, but fun descents. Trail is well maintained but it's bumpy so a bike with good suspension really helps. I would not recommend this trail for young kids or non experienced mountain bikers as the trail is narrow is some areas with steep cliffs on the side. You can watch my GoPro video of the trail here which gives you a really good idea on what to expect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zomsFZ9u7fA

Ok i gave this 5 stars for mountain biking but we didnt even get 10 minutes in. If you are a thrill seeker and an experienced mountain biker, this is your trail! We met some people coming out on fat bikes. They said it was very challenging and a bit scary. My 15 year old daughter and I were very scared on this trail on our mountain bikes! The trail is narrow and lots of rocks and roots. Great for hiking! Not for biking for us. Just wanted to make people aware :)

This new trail is phenomenal. Trail bed is wide and flat, great walking. Smaller water obstacles have been raised with flat rocks, larger ones with excellent bridges. Switchbacks are well placed, along with a couple of unique stairstep type ascents/descents. Keep an eye and ear open for mountain bikes coming up behind you, as this is a shared mountain bike trail. Was extremely disappointed that Fundy Park no longer supplies firewood at the 3 campsites.....this has also ruined the site in the sense that campers are destroying the trees at them for fires.

Amazing trail with gorgeous views if you can get there when it’s not too foggy; took the dog and no issues keeping up (*she is a hiker). Signage at Fundy National Park rates this trail as difficult, although moderate to difficult would be my review, depending on heat conditions. Most of the trail is shaded, with slightly steep (but short) interval inclines. Wanted to stay longer than we did, but spilt puppy’s water (crap!) Highly recommended trail, and one of my favourites to visit.

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

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.

Beautiful hike, spent the night on the beach. Undergoing some construction currently- looking forward to seeing how it turns out!
