From St. Martins travel east on Main Street for 2 km until you drop into a small valley and inlet. Keep right and Main Street will turn into Big Salmon River Road. Just around the turn you will cross a covered bridge over Vaughan Creek. After 3.7 km you will come to a fork in the road. Turn right at the fork onto Little Beach Road. Eventually Little Beach Road turns into Melvin Beach Road and after another 3.7 km you will come to the gate for the Fundy Trail Parkway.
If the park is closed you can still access the Multi-Use Trail 500 meters before the gate on the right side of the road. You could probably also park at the gate and save yourself some time.
The Fundy Trail Parkway provides easy access to a 16 km stretch of rugged coastline on the famous Bay of Fundy. A road and Multi-Use Trail meander along the top of the cliffs providing spectacular view of the Bay of Fundy and the coastline. The Fundy Trail Parkway is part of one of the last remaining coastal wilderness areas between Florida and Labrador.
The interpretive center provides information on the logging, fishing and shipbuilding history of the area. In the early 1900's Big Salmon River was a flourishing community and you can still find remnants of this history on the Big Salmon River Beach Loop, which travels along the inlet of the river.
The Fundy Trail Parkway opened its gates in 1998 with the completion of phase 1 of the project. Phase two of the project is expected to be competed by 2017.
