The Big Salmon River Cemetery Trail is one of two trails along the parkway that go to historic cemeteries. This one is nestled into the hillside of Big Salmon River among the large spruce trees. The trail starts at the Cranberry Brook Lookout that offers amazing views of Big Salmon River and the visitor centre. The trail descends steadily down through the mossy spruce forest until it comes to the fence surrounding the historic cemetery.
There are also signs of past industry along the trail. On our hike we found a large piece of steel that looked like it might be part of an old boiler or other large piece of equipment.

From the west gate drive for 10.8 kilometres along the parkway until you see the Cranberry Brook Lookout parking on the right. Park here and descend the stairs. Then continue on the trail at the bottom of the stairs.
