The indispensable companion for a Dieppe, Moncton, or Riverview walkabout, Trails of Greater Moncton provides trail descriptions, maps, photographs, and fascinating details about plants, animals, historic sites, and other landmarks. Most of the 25 trails are suitable for anyone, but a few will challenge the adventurous . Well-groomed multi-use trails invite cyclists as well as people pushing strollers or using wheelchairs, while forest paths beckon wanderers on foot. The Trans Canada Trail winds along the Petitcodiac River. In the parks, groomed trails, woods roads, and rugged footpaths lead hikers instantly from city streets into wild nature.
