French Fort Cove is located just off of the King George Highway in Miramichi West. This 6.2-mile out-and-back route offers several views of a dramatic gulch that plunges down to the French Fort River feeding into the cove and the Miramichi River. Climbing on loose dirt and sections of tightly winding singletrack requires intermediate skills, but we highly recommend this ride to beginners wanting to develop their skills. The brevity of the difficult sections and easier riding on the doubletrack and multi-use trails make this an ideal place to improve your conditioning and your skills. Your efforts climbing the side of the gulch and negotiating the singletrack will be rewarded with views down the cove and out to the Miramichi River. This ride combines great scenery and a good variety of trails, which we hope will remain accessible to mountain bikers as the park develops.

This is an excellent trail. It has several paths, some for beginners or for taking the entire family, and some for the challenges or the advance trail. It has all the beauty that nature lovers would enjoy.
