Trails in the Region

Hiking Trails in the Fundy Biosphere Region

In essence, a trail is a path, a road, a link that can be traveled, connecting two places. But, a trail can be much more than that. We believe trails are an absolutely vital link, not only between communities found within the Biosphere Region, but also to the very essence of the Biosphere Region itself; its nature, its places, its very soul.

Trails are places where we can connect with nature and are also places where one can be active: walk, hike, run, explore, snowshoe, ski, cycle or just take it all in. They certainly encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.

Trails are places where we can learn; they are living classrooms. Through the connections a trail creates, a trail can also encourage sustainable development. The Fundy Biosphere Region is laced with fabulous trails, not only in parks and conservation areas, but across the region in several directions and locations.
