Fundy Trail Parkway is a 2,559 hectare (6,323 acre) park featuring a 30 km (19 mile) drive hugging the southern coast of New Brunswick with stunning views in every direction. Visitors can drive the paved parkway that hugs the coastal cliffs, lace up their hiking boots or hop on a mountain bike and explore the trails. The trails connect to paths and stairways which lead to pristine beaches and tumbling waterfalls, Precambrian rocks, or 250-m (820-ft.) cliffs that tower at the water’s edge.
Why it’s a must on Atlantic Canada Itineraries!
This season the parkway can be accessed from both east and west entrances. The Sussex Connector road opened in the spring of 2020 and was officially celebrated on July 7, 2020.
Last season on the Parkway saw the completion of 6 new soul-inspiring lookouts. The now completed parkway features 21 lookouts, 14 observation decks, 5 tidal-swept beaches, 19 hiking trails and 4 waterfalls. The trail has been carved out of the Fundy escarpment, one of the last remaining coastal wilderness areas between Florida and Labrador.
The Fundy Trail is an incredible Bay of Fundy eco-adventure and now lays claim to being part of two UNESCO designated sites: the Fundy Biosphere Reserve and the Stonehammer Global Geopark!
Visitors can stop by the Interpretive Centre, built in the style of an 1800s logging bunkhouse in a lovely setting overlooking the Big Salmon River. There is a snack bar, restroom facilities and a small gift boutique for your convenience.
An 84-m (275 ft) suspension footbridge invites visitors to cross the sparkling waters of the Big Salmon River which serves as the beginning of the Fundy Footpath. The Fundy Footpath, named as one of the top 50 hiking paths in the world by Explore Magazine, is a continuous wilderness trail from the Fundy Trail to Fundy National Park, a total distance of 61 km (38 mi.).
Fundy Trail is the ideal spot to bring your group. The park is motorcoach friendly with lots of free parking. If your company is interested in bringing your group to the Fundy Trail, we’d love to hear from you. With the Fundy Trail Parkway set to become the best new scenic drive in Canada, we’re preparing to host even more groups! Now connected to Sussex, Connector roads are being built to link the park to Alma, NB in 2021. These roads will significantly change New Brunswick itineraries forever to create the ultimate Bay of Fundy experience!
