For directions to the park see Plaster Rock Tourist Park.

The Hiking Trail is a longer trail that goes deep into the woods and eventually returns to the Sadlers Nature Trail. To get to the trail take the Sadlers Nature Trail in either direction from the parking lot.

If you are going around the lake to the left follow Sadlers Nature Trail until it splits with the Cuffley Trail and goes left away from the lake. You will soon come to a large park sign with a map of the park showing you where you are. The Hiking Trail is just across from this sign and is only marked by a small sign so it is a bit hard to see (see picture to the right).

If you are going around the lake to the right follow the Sadlers Nature Trail and stay right. You will eventually pass the Cuffley Trail on your right that continues around the lake. Shortly after this you will find the Sadlers Nature Trail going to the left. Continue straight onto the Hiking Trail.

Trail Description

The Hiking Trail is the longest of the trails in the park and goes deeper into the woods away from the lake. The trail travels through a mostly low, wet spruce and cedar forest with several small bridges and conduroy (small logs) being used to cross wet areas. There are descriptions of many different types of trees on small signs in front of each of the trees.
