Want to see Fundy's hidden treasures? Then gear up and hike the Fundy Circuit!

The Circuit is a 48-kilometre network of seven linked hiking trails that takes you through river valleys, past lakes, along the coast and through beautiful forests.

The trip takes between three and five days to complete. There are backcountry campsites along the way (Reservations required).

It's best to hike the Circuit so that the Upper Salmon trail is the last leg of your journey.

The Circuit's Trails

  1. Coastal (10.1 km)
  2. Shiphaven (0.5 km)
  3. Marven Lake (8 km)
  4. Bennett Brook (7.7 km)
  5. Tracey Lake (7 km)
  6. The Forks (3.4 km)
  7. Upper Salmon River (8.8 km)

River Crossings

Several trails in the park have river crossings. When water levels are high, crossing the river can be dangerous. Water levels are monitored and crossings are closed when conditions are hazardous. At these times, signs are posted at the trailhead to indicate the closure. If you are unsure about water conditions, don't take a chance.

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.
