Fall Foliage Cruise — New Brunswick; Fundy Park Trailway


Big Salmon River Interpretive Centre

A short time after Fuller Falls we arrived with tour guide Diane Howarth at the Big Salmon River Interpretive Centre along the Fundy Trail Parkway. The Fundy Trail Parkway takes you into the Fundy National Park, and the Big Salmon River once served as a major logging center. The Interpretive Centre acts as a museum to this local logging industry, and the building is a reproduction of the loggers’ bunkhouse that once stood on this site. The views here are quite extraordinary:

The Big Salmon River flows directly into the Bay of Fundy:

Looking the other way you peer into the lumber-rich forest that was the lifeblood of this industry for so long:

Just below the center you’ll see beautifully green moss-covered logs among the rocks:

The Fundy Trail Parkway is relatively new, having been opened to the public in 1998. From the parkway you’ll find some great fall foliage views of the surrounding forest:

Not to mention the Bay of Fundy:

Looking east toward Fundy National Park

Shortly after spending some time in St. Martins, Diane Howarth took us east. First stop was the Flowerpot Rock Scenic Footpath:
