Fundy Trail VS Fundy National Park - which, or both? Please help with New Brunswick plans.

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be driving from eastern Massachusetts to PEI in a few weeks, and we'd like to do some sightseeing along the Bay of Fundy on the way. I'm trying to figure out our itinerary, and maximize what we can see without taking too many extra days. It's hard for me to figure out the driving distances, and how much time to allow for each place. We're not the type who like to rush through places, and we generally take our time getting going in the mornings. On the other hand, I think we need to have reservations for the places we'll stay, we can't just play it by ear, so I need to plan our route.

I'm hoping to visit Campobello Island, either on the way up or the way home, taking the ferries. We also want to see Hopewell Rocks, both at high and low tides - I think that our best bet is doing that on our way home, due to the time of the tide tables, so we'd stay in Alma or nearby overnight. I understand that we should visit Cape Enrage on our way there.

Are we better off spending time in Fundy National Park, or going down to the Fundy Trail and spending our time there? Or are the both so wonderful we should try to make the time to do both? We like to hike, but I doubt we'll have time to do more than short hikes on this trip. The sea caves in St. Martins sound interesting, are they worth seeing? How much time would that take? I'm assuming the Fundy Trail is a loop, not a road we can take on our way to somewhere, from the info I've found online.

I may have more questions later, but this information would really help me with my planning. Thanks for any help.
