The trailhead is in Sackville, roughly 32 miles south of Moncton. The trail systems that make up the Sackville - Port Elgin ride demonstrate the synergy that can exist between local and provincial trails. The ride, which is 42-mile combination, makes use of the original right-of-way of the New Brunswick and prince Edward Island Railway. The trail, now part of the Sentier NB Trail system, follows the converted railroad bed from Sackville to Port Elgin, where it connects with a local trail system that follows the Gaspereau River out to Fort Gaspereau National Historic Site. The multi-use trail provides a direct, easy-to-follow route between the two towns, and its link to the local Gaspereau Trail will give you the chance to discover more about the local community, the natural environment, and the history for the area. On the multi-use trail between Sackville and Port Elgin, you will pass through an ever-changing landscape of salt marshes, mixed farmlands, and woodlands.
