Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Professional Review and Guide
"Cape Chignecto Provincial Park is a 4200 ha (10,378 acres) natural environment park located on a dramatic coastal peninsula next to the Bay of Fundy. The park offers wilderness camping in secluded coves and ravines by this remote shoreline. A wonderful walking trail takes visitors along high cliffs and deep valleys. Cape Chignecto officially opened July 25, 1998. This is both one of the most difficult and one of the best trails in Nova Scotia.
Few prepared footpaths are this long, and, when completed from Cape Chignecto to Apple River, it will be the longest in any provincial park in Nova Scotia. By British and Appalachian trail standards, Cape Chignecto would only rate as moderately difficult, or even lower. The maximum elevation here is only around 175 m (574 ft), whereas Mt. Katahdin in Baxter State Park (Maine) climbs 1219 m (4000 ft) in 6 miles. I recommend taking three days to hike the complete loop, and staying overnight if you wish to visit Refugee Cove and return. Camping and day-use fees must be paid at the Administrative Centre."
