Fundy Trail expansion announced

Great news on the Bay of Fundy outdoor adventure front this week: an additional $10 million was announced yesterday to further extend one of the Bay of Fundy's best coastal trails, the Fundy Trail Parkway in New Brunswick. The park currently consists of 14 km of hiking/cycling trails that run parallel to a low-speed coastal roadway. This funding announcement will enable an additional 5 more kilometres to be built; getting it that much closer to joining up with Fundy National Park (then 19 km away).

The Fundy Trail Parkway has opened up a truly breathtaking section of the Bay of Fundy's dramatic tidal coastline, providing views that rival the Cabot Trail and the Icefield Parkway between Jasper and Banff. The new section will be dotted with scenic lookouts and beach access points to provide a more interactive and accessible visitor experience. Check out Fundy Trail's website for more info.
