Starting Location: Park at P8. Facing the river, proceed to your left along the river. Walk under the Mitchell Franklin Bridge on the Suspension Bridge Trail. Cross the suspension bridge and you will see the sign for the trail head. Follow the footpath to your right. Please note, it is strongly advised that hikers register at the interpretive centre or by calling 833-2019 to proceed on this footpath, even if you are only doing a day hike to Long Beach. (The registration is for your safety)
The Fundy Footpath (recently listed in the “50 Best Hikes in the World by Explore Magazine) is separate from the Fundy Trail Parkway although part of it does fall within our park. The footpath is a challenging wilderness trail that starts at the suspension bridge at Big Salmon River and hugs the coastline to the boundaries of Fundy National Park. Four to five days is recommended.

A footpath kit may be purchased from our website or at the interpretive centre.
