The trail is in Fundy National Park. This ride follows an old cart track through heavily wooded terrain, rolling across a series of hills and valleys created by fast-flowing streams. It is a 9.8-mile out-and-back excursion that is well signed and easy to follow. The trail is hard-packed and includes sections of grassy doubletrack as well as gravel and loose rock. Although the ride requires only basic bike handling skills, its grueling hills demand cardiovascular fitness and endurance. That said, this ride makes an excellent overnight trip for hardy riders equipped with racks and panniers. The mouth of the Goose River is a peaceful place to linger, and the primitive campsites available are possibly the most beautiful in the park. To use these sites you must register in advance at the Visitor Center.

This trail is technically easy but physically exhausting. It took our group of 3 close to 3 hours with a 1/2 hour break. It was basically 3 hours of pure work. Not my type of trail. Even though you are basically following the Fundy coast you don't see the Bay of Fundy til the end so I wasn't awed by the scenery. If I was 20 yrs old (not 48) I may look at it as a challenge outside of that I won't be doing this trail again.
