The East Coast of Canada has a lot to offer, and some of the region's best hidden gems are to be explored in New Brunswick.
Located on the Bay of Fundy, near the village of Alma, lies Fundy National Park - a large coastal park that represents the Maritime Acadian Highlands region. With more than 25 waterfalls within the area, the park is filled with numerous hiking trails that take you on beautiful paths of green oasis fields.
While the entire park is breathtaking, perhaps the most picturesque path is the Dicksons Falls Trail. Scattered with ferns and streams, the trail takes you through a lush valley along the Dickson Brook.
Considered the most popular path in the park, the trail is 1.5 km long and takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. The area also changes during each season, so it's recommended to visit during various days throughout the year to truly capture it's beauty.
During the summer, the environment creates an oasis for many species of ferns to grow - while the fall welcomes the beautiful changes of leaves within the forest.
While Dickson Falls Trail is the most known, there are still so many trails in the park to explore. Operated under a large international trail system and scattered throughout the Acadian forest, all of the hiking trails at Fundy National Park range from the level of moderate to difficult.
With multiple waterfalls and coastal views within the region, visitors from across the country come to walk those trails and to also swim in the back-country rivers and marvel at the world's tides.
