Hiking Waterfall
Distance: 5 km return trip
Time: 2-3 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Steep Section(s): Yes
Habitat: Forest, River

Swift, cool water tumbles over a 12 m (39 ft) sheer rock face forming one of Fundy National Park’s most awesome waterfalls, Laverty falls. This 2.5 km trail leads you to Laverty Falls through a mixed forest of maple, birch, and beech, which provides a scenic back drop in all seasons. Unlace your boots and cool your feet in the deep pool that has been carved beneath these curtain falls.

For a fast track home, come back the way you came along Laverty Falls Trail; for a longer day hike, loop back to your vehicle through the Upper Salmon river valley via the 4.8 km Moosehorn trail.

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.
