East Branch Trail
Distance: 5.6 km loop
Time: 2 - 2.5 hours
On this trail, you may find artifacts remaining from the region's logging past. 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!
