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.

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.

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

You need land owner permission to access the private road past the white gate. If you do not have their permission it is about 15 km in and back.
We love this trail and try to do it yearly. It is a lovely walk through the woods for the majority of the walk. It is not until the last km or so that you are walking up a steep granite dome. However once you reach the top it is magnificent! We heard loons in all throughout the evening and early morning . It was magical. The light pollution is little, so perfect for night photos. You can see the city of St John and the Bay of Fundy in the distance.
