Excellent place to walk or run just outside the city of Saint John. Beautiful coastal area!! Lovely views of Bay of Fundy as well as Saints Rest Beach. Makes you feel like you are really away. Great all year round.

Hiking the park for the first time was awesome. Chicadees were Landing on our hands! We saw...and heard...seals as well as squirrels of various colours. Hike as long as you like; there's a map of trails at the beginning.

If you’re in the Saint John area and enjoy the outdoors, this is a must see. There is a large coastal salt water beach leading up to the park. Many people could stop here and make a fun afternoon of it. In the park itself,...More

Have not walked the park lately but previous experience has been that there will be a path created by walkers who use the path every day.

I prefer the main trail that has gravel laid on it mainly because I walk my dog there or do it as a run. But the wooded trails are nice too
