Start off this exploration by soaking in the beautiful view at the lookout. This is picture perfect Fundy Shore scenery. To see the most photographed waterfall of Fundy National Park, walk the trail! It takes you down into a cool, lush valley along the swift and youthful Dickson Brook. This is the most popular trail in the park, so do not miss it!
Although more than 5 km long, it is easy walking on flat terrain. The old logging road is a wider section of the trail open to mountain biking.
Highlights Throughout the Year
- In summer the lovely Black-throated blue warbler calls East Branch home. Listen for its distinctive call – zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zee.
- This trail is particularly beautiful in the fall. The mix of deciduous and coniferous trees renders the colour palette varied and bright.
- Tall red spruce first attracted lumbermen to Fundy in the early 1800s. As it reaches the stream, this trail visits the disappearing remains of that era – the flush dam and log yard.
- Explore this trail again in winter – on your snowshoes!
