Where are we going today?

An ultimate Bay of Fundy eco-adventure. Drive the paved parkway that hugs the coastal cliffs. Lace up your hiking boots and hop on your mountain bike and explore the trails. These connect to paths and stairways which lead to pristine beaches and tumbling waterfalls, Precambrian rocks, 250 m (820 ft.) cliffs that tower at the water’s edge.

One of the last remaining coastal wilderness areas between Florida and Labrador.

You can explore as far as Long Beach Lookout. At the interpretive centre, you’ll find original artifacts and old photos from a bygone era - back when logging, fishing and shipbuilding were an economic mainstay of this region. Guided tours to Hearst Lodge with overnight accommodations and Great Day Experiences for the family or groups are available. Enjoy a family outing on one of the new guided interpretive walks.

At the Interpretive Centre there is a snack bar, restroom facilities and a small retail outlet.

Above the interpretive centre, there is a suspension footbridge across the sparkling waters of the Big Salmon River and the beginning of the Fundy Footpath.

Teachers corner

We support education at the Fundy Trail. We are committed to helping children of all ages appreciate the wilderness and learn more about themselves and others. Outdoor environmental education programs are available for students ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 12. These hands-on learning experiences challenge students both physically and mentally, inspire them, and help them become more aware of their surrounding environment. Our programs are curriculum-based to assist teachers in developing their students knowledge and skills. We provide a fun and unique out-of-classroom setting, and we encourage participation by one and all. For all education programs, we require a supervisor-to-student ratio of 1:10. Supervisors and teachers are expected to stay with their groups. Students are required to bring their lunches as we do not have a cafeteria (a small concession is available). Several picnic sites and benches are available. When booking programs be aware the weather may be different from the weather at your place of origin. Teachers are responsible for ensuring that students come with appropriate footwear for hiking, and proper outerwear. Teachers and trip organizers are encouraged to speak with one of our guides to establish objectives for their program.

    This place is beautiful, it was even more beautiful before some people decided to destroy it by putting in bridges, buildings & parking lots. Its unfortunate your committee is moving to destroy Martin Head the same way you ruined Salmon River. Beauty is a natural state, not a commercialized tourist grab..

    How can you beat this? You get wonderful views on a nice scenic drive along the coast. There are waterfalls, walkways and rope ladders, and even a suspension bridge. My one-year-old loved the experience. The staff was very friendly. The only downside, which cannot be controlled, is if there is fog. The fog can be REAL thick and obstruct a lot of the views. It's worth taking the chance.
