Great spot to stop to stretch your legs and get a good glimpse of some scenic coastal views! Didn’t run into any bears or moose but, the sign says ya might! A few chipmunks were watching us but, that’s about it!

HikingGreat!

We did the whole Coastal lookout points, and part of the Jack Pine trail. The lookouts were amazing, as were the views off the giant rock cliffs.

Right by Black Brook beach, a relatively easy and very scenic hike. You can usually go to Neil’s Harbour by the Coastal but part of the trail is closed; so I’d say a few km on the two trails was all we covered. Such great views; a must for geology and nature buffs- learn about the Jack Pines. We saw many gannets diving as well.

Did this on a windy day, which turned the ocean waters violent and made for some huge splashes on the rocky shores next to the coastal trail. It’s a fairly easy and quick walk, with the coastal portion delivering some great views. Be sure to give this one a try if the wind is blowing.

Next to Moosehorn Trail in Fundy Bay, this may be a favourite! So many places to stop and absorb the beauty of nature! Mostly easy hike. We have sighted whales a couple times from this trail. Landing in Black Brook Beach at the end of this trail, with a lovely waterfall was a nice treat too!

Beautiful trail. Easy with a few moderate sections. Parking area is a bit tight, but more parking and facilities at nearby Black Brook Beach. Beautiful walk through pine forests as well as exposed areas with views of coastline. Informative boards.

A great first trail today on our drive around the Cabot Trail. A good mix of forest and shore walking with great views.

What an incredible park. Such diverse trails, from woods to open scrub to rocky shores and coves. You can spend an hour or an entire day exploring this amazing park and coastal trail system. Very few places would warrant a second visit but this place has it all. From beaches to waterfalls, rocky look offs to jack pine trails. Stunning.

Beautiful views and easy walk with some stairs and rocks. Has areas where you can walk on the huge granite boulders. Was a perfect short hike for my daughter and I.
