The North Shore region extends from Dalhousie in the north of the province and follows the coast south to the City of Bathurst. On its way it passes a loop trail around Charlo Dam, a boardwalk, beach and lookout tower in Beresford, and the interesting Atlas Park in Pointe Verte that is built around an old open pit mine that has been turned into a man-made lake. The City of Bathurst boasts several parks around the Chaleur Bay including Youghall Beach and Daly Point Reserve, and has several other walking trails in the city.
The region then heads north east from Bathurst along the coast of the Acadian Peninsula, passing Caraquet and Shippigan, before crossing the bridge to Lameque Island. In the town of Lameque you will find the Ecological Park of the Acadian Peninsula (Lameque Eco-Parc). If you continue along route 313 past Lameque you will come to the bridge to Miscou Island. Miscou Island is famous for its lighthouse, fishing towns and peat bogs, which drive the peat moss industry.
From Miscou Island the region follows along the Peninsula to the southeast, passing Tracadie-Sheila and Neguac where you will find Ile-aux-foins Park. The region ends in Miramichi City. This is the beginning of the Miramichi River Region and Acadian Coastal Region South.
