Take exit 9 from route 1 at St. Stephen. Drive into St. Stephen on route 3 and you will soon come to round about. At the round about keep straight onto King Street. Continue on King Street until you come to Budd Street next to the river. Cotinue straight through the lights to enter a parking lot along the waterfront. The trail starts near the back of this parking lot.

If you turn left at the lights onto Budd Street you will soon come to a sharp turn away from the river. Just after this turn you will find a large gravel parking area on the right. The trail travels along the edge of this parking area. There are also several other parking lots along the waterfront you can use to access the trail.

The St. Stephen Waterfront is a short trail but has many things to explore. There is a dock with a small lighthouse on it and a group of granite statues. The trail follows along the river and overlooks the tidal flats along the river at low tide.
