Fundy Trail, New Brunswick
Southern New Brunswick nurtures a rare gem – one of North America’s last remaining coastal wilderness areas between Labrador and Florida. Hidden for many years, this unspoiled retreat is now open for hikers and cyclists to explore and is certainly one of the 10 best hikes in Canada. Situated just outside of St. Martins and less than an hour’s drive from Saint John, the Fundy Trail unlocks 16 km of seaside beauty. The winding trails – perfect for hikers or cyclists – lead to less travelled paths and stairways that divulge sandy beaches, concealed waterfalls and vertigo-inducing cliffs. Get a unique perspective of the Bay of Fundy’s tides – the world’s highest – and keep your eyes peeled for Right Whales and sea birds.
