The trail is split into two sections: Tippen Lot North forms a 2.3 km connection between Chignecto South Campground and Point Wolfe Road; cross the Point Wolfe Road to access Tippen Lot South, a 1.9 km section of trail that takes you to Herring Cove. Tippen Lot can be combined with the Coastal and Whitetail Trails to form a 12 km loop.

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.
