    Major Kollock Creek

    View of Major Kollock Creek

    As we got closer to the end of the mountain-biking trail, we had to navigate down a steep hill to a bridge where we re-crossed the Creek. By now, we were getting fairly close to the coast and the creek was starting to look like something a bit more substantial.

    I really enjoyed this view from the bridge, with the soft foliage as we looked toward the coast, now only a couple of kilometres away around a few more bends. By now, it was just past noon and the sunshine was thinking about coming out in full force. The park designers took pity on us for this major crossing, actually installing railings on both sides of the narrow bridge!

    Snowshoeing in the park

    If you have a pair of snowshoes that you haven't pulled out in awhile and are looking for a winter activity, there are a number of great trails to snowshoe at Kouchibouguac NP. They vary in length, from about 1 km up to 10.5 km or more.

    We recently snowshoed five of them, and the conditions were great ! The main ones are:

    Tweedie Trail = 1.2 km
    Claire Fontaine Trail = 3.0 km
    Osprey Trail = 5.1 km
    Patterson shelter to Little Kouchibouguac River (LKR) walking bridge = 3.8 km
    LKR walking bridge to Middle Kouchibouguac shelter = 1.2 km
    Middle Kouchibouguac shelter to La Source shelter = 5.5 km
    Patterson to La Source (total) = 10.5 km

    They are all hiking trails during the summer months. The winter map doesn't clearly show the first three trails, so for those, you'll have to check the Park Map on their website, at this link: http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/nb/kouchibouguac/visit.aspx.

    There are also a number of wide cross-country trails that you can snowshoe beside.

  • biking and lynx watching!

    by wayne3664 Updated Aug 21, 2007

    This place is a cyclist's paradise. The trail network is now up to 60 km., plus the paved parkways also make for good riding. I rode there all the way from Bathurst NB (145 km) then put in 40-80 km almost each of the 5 days we were there. The highlight of my trail riding fun was when a lynx passed right in front of me on the evening of August 7 around dusk. What a thrill!
