Following the curve of Fundy’s jagged coastline, this challenging 10 km trail rewards hikers with some of the most spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy in the Park.

Herring Cove divides this trail into two sections: the 3 km East section is accessed from the saltwater pool, and cuts inland through a red spruce-dominated fog forest before dropping down to Herring Cove; the 7 km West section travels parallel to the coast from Point Wolfe, with several lookouts and Bay of Fundy views along the way.

Be Prepared!
  • Know your physical limits; Fundy’s wilderness is famous for its rugged cliffs and river valleys. Choose a trail that is challenging but enjoyable for you.
  • Pack for comfort and safety: A sweater and a windbreaker are good insurance against variable weather. We recommend footwear with good traction and support. Pack fresh water and a snack, even if you’re planning a short hike.
  • Plan your route and stick to it. Let someone know where you plan on hiking and your estimated time of return.
  • For your own safety and to preserve the ecological integrity of our Park, stay on marked trails.
  • Leave no trace! Please carry out all garbage, yours and any you may find on the trail.
