The main feature of the trail is the Black Hole pool in the Upper Salmon River. In late summer and fall, Atlantic salmon stay here awhile before they move upstream to spawn. The presence of the elusive eastern cougar (Puma concolor couguar) in the woodlands of New Brunswick has been shrouded in mystery for decades. There have been several reported sightings by residents since the 1940s, but without still or even movie camera on hand, they could not convince officials that they had, in fact, seen a cougar. There is no need for concern to hiker safety. Cougars are very secretive and generally avoid people.
