This is a must-see Bay of Fundy item if you like the outdoors and views from cliffs of interesting coastal rock formations and love to walk. There isn't anything dangerous in getting to or hiking the Three Sisters or Squally Point. The Eatonville Rd. is the only way to get there now as the Apple River Rd. from West Apple River to Eastonville is blocked at Edgetts Beach, as that road was subject to blockage by high tides... though that still wouldn't be dangerous. Unfortunately, google maps doesn't mark the Edgetts Beach blockage clearly, however, the google map directions will take you through West Advocate Harbour and the Eatonville Rd., which is the correct way currently.

The Eatonville Rd. has been graded (it is dirt) over the last two weeks (about May 5th, 2024) and it is now level while rocky, but all ruts and mud holes are gone. I recommend at least a small SUV with some clearance and be prepared to go slow, but it is safe even for regular cars, if you are careful. There is ample room for passing cars coming from the opposite direction in most spots and you will see traffic coming. Be courteous.

The local hike, right from the Eatonville Day Use Park, is even easy walking with graded and mostly level trails, to see the nearby (within 1.5 km) viewpoints of the Three Sisters and Squally Point. It is mostly level and graded with a few minor challenges. Venturing beyond that on foot towards Elliot Brook, Green Point and all points south of that will require a good level of fitness as although paths are clear and well worn and marked, they are full of rocks, roots, and muddy spots that are difficult to traverse without getting your boots wet.

Contact me if anyone would like some local guidance. I live nearby.

This needs to be removed from a part of the GeoPark sites because it is dangerous and you can get trapped there if the tides is high. Applewood road floods and the road that goes through the Cape Park Eatonville, is more like a logging road only fit for 4 wheelers. It is narrow and only wide enough for one car! 12km dirt road in the middle of no where , wouldn't do it.

Unfortunately, this part of Nova Scotia does not believe in clear road signs. Take the road from Apple River and not from the main entrance into the park (difficult road). The views from the platform are great and well worth the effort to get here.

This is just part of the Cape Chignecto Provincial Park. But it’s no longer open, in fact there’s a sign on the way there saying the road is closed but the concrete block is moved out of the way.

Directions: my GPS told me I was at the Cape Chignecto Provincial Park about 4-5 kilometres before I was. Drive on the 209 through Advocate Harbour. You’ll see a sign for the Cape Chignecto Provincial Park but keep going. Stay on the 209 toward Apple River. Turn onto the Apple River Road toward West Apple River. When the road forks, keep straight and don’t swing right. The road will turn into a dirt road. You’ll cross some bridges and just before one of them the road was washed out and some folks piled rocks up to make it passable. Shortly after this, you may see some cars parked but keep going. This is where the kayaking tour meets up. Once you get past this point, there are actual signs, orange ones, follow these to a parking lot.

There is a great sign showing you the two paths, one to the left and one to the right. The left loop takes you to the Three Sisters. There are some other great views as well, Eatonville Harbour, the Fissure and the Sea Stack. When you get to the end of the loop, look for a path in the woods just behind the picnic tables and take it back to the main road. It’ll save you have to go all the way back around. The first loop took less than an hour.

There are some bathrooms just off the parking lot. There’s a building there as well but is not used anymore. There are more bathrooms down the path.

Views are spectacular. Nova Scotia has some great coastal views and these rank right at the top.

There is a sea kayaking company in Advocate Harbour that does tours. If your into kayaking, it would be an excellent way to see the sites.

There is a great restaurant in Advocate Harbour, Wild Caraway. Highly recommend.

Great kayak guided tour with Nova Shore Kayaking! Our guides were very informed about geology and history of the place.
The snack was really good, from fresh vegetables grown in their garden.

It was a very easy hike. We did it pushing a stroller.
The only downside was that you couldn't get the greatest view if you stayed within the fencing

We kayaked around the Three Sisters to Eatonville beach and had a nice hot lunch, then paddled back. Cold and rainy, but still a fun experience.

The road to get here is not easy and a little rough but well worth the trip. Not only do you see the three sisters but there are 4 other viewing locations that offer picturesque view of the coast and depending on weather and time of day are also beautiful.

Beautiful views from all the view points. The three sisters are an amazing rock formation in the water.
Difficult to find, we thought we were going the wrong way more than once. Long winding gravel road for about 12 km.
Long walking trails, you must be able to walk on uneven ground. The trails are easy to follow.
