Highlights Throughout the Year

Dickson Falls © Parks Canada / C. Reardon
  • Dickson Falls always dresses for the season, so visit it often to experience the differences.
  • The most accessible waterfall of the park which contains dozens... really!
  • In the summer, the waterfall environment creates an oasis for many species of ferns.
  • A cool place to be on a hot summer’s day!
  • In the fall Dickson Brook babbles down towards the Bay of Fundy carrying flashes of gold, yellow, and red as leaves fall off the Acadian Forest trees.
  • Interpretive panels tell you the story of the diversity of life in this small river valley.

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.
