    Fundy Footpath Anyone?

    Hey all,

    Just wondering if anyone here (Canadian or otherwise) has ever hiked the Fundy Footpath in New Brunswick? I'm hoping to get out there next spring/summer, but want to start planning. Any resourses? Any suggestions?

    Check out http://www.atlanticgeocaching.com/

    There are many geocachers in that area and somebody there will be able to ans your questions.

    Contact the New Brunswick tourism (government site) and they will send you a package with a great map in it.

    There are likely non-government trail-related sites that may be able to help you out also.

    I have hiked the Fundy foopath, very tough trail and very remote in places. There is not alot of online info on the trail that I could find but they do have a guide book. Get ready for climbing hills

    There is a Facebook group as well 'friends of the Fundy foopath' , would be a good place to get first hand info.

    The book "hiking trails of New Brunswick" from goose lane books is about the best resource I found when planning my trip. This book will also give you all the info for Fundy national park and it's trails which you will need because the trail will leave from or take you into the park depending on your direction of travel.

    What do you mean by remote? If you mean see next to no one I might add this to my list. My 7 days in Gros Morne ruined me for backpacking near others.

    I ran into 2 people in four days of hiking. This trail is so tough that not alot of people attempt it so it makes for some quiet hiking

    This is exciting stuff! My first hammock just came, I'm planning this trip...good week so far (except for the rain). I'll definitely contact NB tourism, that sounds like a good start. I'll have to track down bluenose, too - thanks for the headsup!

    @keg: Gros is on my wishlist as well, was it just amazing? The pics I've seen look stunning.

    The North Rim was absolutely ridiculous 10/11 hour days but if felt like I could have been the first person ever to set foot in parts. The Long Range is more traveled and there are actual trails for most of it. I got lucky with 3 sunny days out of 7. One warning is that no matter how much I heard about the wickedly impassable tuckamore, it's still worse than I thought.

    My trip report should be posted on here somewhere.
