On highway 1 north from Saint John take exit 137 onto St. Martins Road towards Rothesay. At the lights near the fire station turn left onto Campbell Drive. After 250 meters the road ends at a junction with Grove Avenue. The trail begins across the road at this junction. Park along the road near the trail.

To find the other end of the trail start at the golf course on Rothesay Road (route 100). Drive south on Rothesay Road a short distance and turn left onto Dunedin Road. Take the first right onto Horton Road. At the end of Horton Road turn left onto Higginson Avenue. Park at the end of the Higginson Avenue. Follow the trail off the end of the road down to the main trail. Turn right onto the trail.


The Hillside Trail is a wide, crushed rock trail that follows a pipeline right-of-way. It travels behind a strip of trees near the highway and goes behind the golf course. The trail crosses several streams and is a great place to take a walk or go for a jog.
