Nature’s rush

The ebb and flow of the Bay of Fundy is a natural wonder you can experience from hiking trails and scenic roadways
Nestled along New Brunswick’s south coast, well away from the major highways, is one of Atlan­tic Canada’s true tourism gems — the Fundy Trail. It’s a treasure that’s growing in popularity and in size as the majestic system of roadways, hiking and biking trails, and scenic outlooks enters its second phase of development.

“When it’s completed, New Brunswickers will be very proud of the spectacular view and closeness of the Bay of Fundy that we’re going to provide,” says Stuart Jamieson, New Brunswick’s minister of tourism.

“It’s the largest project of tourism in the province’s history, and it’s something that will last for generations to come.”

The Fundy Trail — open from mid-May to mid-October — was started in 1990 and began with the purchase of 28,000 hectares of land from the Hearst Corp.

In fact, the Hearst lodge still remains on the property. With four bedrooms plus two adjacent cabins, it was built as a fishing lodge by U.S. newspaper magnate J. Randolph Hearst.
