Description

For years I have driven by the Blockhouse not thinking there was a trail here. This year we decided to stop and check it out and were amazed to find people walking out onto a long point in the bay. Once the kids were done exploring the blockhouse and the canons they walked down the steps to the shore. From here they explored the long point with a large red rocks protruding to form a sort of ridge. A natural line or protection for the bay and a very smart place to put a blockhouse and canons.

Keep an eye on the tides. They rise faster here than anyplace else in the world so make sure you make your way up to the grassy lawn of the blockhouse before it comes in.

This walk is included in the Bay of Fundy book. For more information click on the picture in the Store box above.

Directions

When you are entering Saint Andrews on Reed Street you will come to a junction next to the arena. At the junction turn right to go towards the town center. After 350 meters you will come to a T in the road. Turning left will take you to the town center. Turning right will take you to Centennial Park and the Saint Andrews Historic Blockhouse.
