Cheticamp River is known for its fishing; the name of this hike is French for “salmon pools,” and anglers are often found at the deep lagoons beneath the several cataracts along the route. This path was developed to attract anglers to the park by providing easier access to the best spots. If you wish to try your luck, remember that you must use a tied fly and have a licence. Novices can enjoy this hike. As far as the first pool and warden’s cabin, the route is road width and well-graded, suitable for almost anyone. Beyond this point, however, the trail becomes progressively more difficult, more suitable for experienced, fit hikers.
