Kouchibouguac’s 60 kilometres of bicycle paths are ideal for gentle exploration. Pedal along well-maintained gravel-topped trails that lead past striking fields of wildflowers, multifaceted peat bogs, saltwater lagoons and grand Acadian woodland.

Alongside the Kouchibouguac River, natural formations of Sandstone Garden invite Zen-like relaxation—and make sure to get a photo of the famous Leaning Pine. Later, search for the “bridge under the bridge”—a less-travelled route traversing the meandering Black River. Popular Major Kollock Trail leads mountain bikers past bogs, through woodland and atop sand on a varied-terrain adventure.

Then watch the lobster fishermen bring in the day’s catch at Loggiecroft Wharf—one of two working commercial docks—and park your bike for a walk on Osprey Trail. Numerous rest shelters dot the crisscrossing routes. Directional signs are plentiful. Equal parts active and relaxing, this is some of Atlantic Canada’s finest riding.

Fat bike

A fat bike is a bicycle with over-sized tires on wide rims. They are designed to ride on soft unstable terrain like snow and sand. They are a special type of bike that accommodate a much wider tire, often ranging from 3.5 to 5 inches in width.

The park grooms fat bike trails in the winter, making Kouchibouguac a year-round cycling destination. 

Additional Notes
  • Bikes are not permitted on the beach, dunes or coastal areas (beach, lagoons and rivers)
  • Shelters and dry toilets are located along the bikeway in the central area of the park
  • Way finding signs and locator maps are distributed throughout the trail system
  • Fat bike users must stay on the bike trails
  • If you are renting your fat bike at Kouchibouguac National Park, we recommend that you use a bike rack on your vehicle for safe transportation
