Herring Cove Provincial Park is a nature-lover’s island paradise located on Campobello Island on New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy.

The park is a hiker’s delight offering 6 unique trails of varying lengths. Hike the Carriage Road through a forest of ancient spruce, across log bridges and around a small pond, or follow an old logging road once used by the Roosevelts.

Around the 1.6-km (1-mi.) long beach, you will find sea urchins, a rich bog and sheer cliffs. Wildlife and birdlife abound at Herring Cove. Bald eagles, osprey and beavers are among the many species that can be observed along the trails at the park.

The park also features a 9-hole golf course with pro shop and a restaurant featuring scrumptious local offerings.

 Trails

A large boulder the size of a garage was left along this trail over 10,000 years ago. It’s no wonder U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt had a tea house nearby on Glensevern Lake.

Estimated Time :0.75 h
Difficulty :Easy

Length :1.0 km/0.62 mi. (Linear)
Estimated Time :0.75 h
