Province of New Brunswick Off The Beaten Path

  • Sackville

    Sackville is a town located just about on the border between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. It's home to Mount Allison University and near the Tantramar Marshes. It is also in the centre of the Maritime Provinces. I only spent a brief time here but I kinda liked it. It seemed like all the buildings here are built out of brick which looks really...

  • World's Largest Potato

    In Maugerville, there is the World's Largest Potato. The potato is located on the North side of Highway 105 in a parking lot. Maugerville is located along the St. John River about 22 or so km for Fredericton or just on the other side of the bridge from Burton which is just down the road from Oromocto.

  • World's Largest Atlantic Salmon

    The world's largest atlantic salmon, which apparantly has the name of Sam is located in Campbellton. The fish is located near the Restigouche River by the tourist information centre which is east of the bridge that leads to Pointe-a-la-Croix, Quebec. The area around Sam is a pretty nice area and the rest of Campbellton is nice to walk around for a...

  • World's Largest Axe

    In the town of Nackawic, the world's largest axe makes it's home. It is quite large indeed. It was erected in 1991 because that was the year Nackawic became Canada's forestry capital. It's obvious why they chose an axe as the monument to represent this. Nackawic has a population close to a thousand people and is 65 km west of Fredericton. It is...

  • Wading a clam (ouch) infested creek!

    Located at the southwest of NB, Deer Island was one of our 2006 biking destinations. After leaving the ferry, we immediately turned off onto a small highway along the northwest coast, a dead-end road leading to Northern Harbour. It was an interesting ride and, just before we descended the steepest hill of the entire trip, I said to Russ that I hope...

  • If old homesteads could talk

    Many people say that Canada does not exist east of Montreal - not true, but there have been some hard times 'down East' in the last couple of centuries! While travelling the back-roads of NB, the sight of an abandoned farm is not unusual. It is interesting to wander around these dwellings and reflect on the unfulfilled dreams of their owners, or at...

  • You have got to go out of your way to...

    About as far away from anything else in New Brunswick is small Miscou Island, located at the northeast tip of the province. To reach Miscou, you first cross a bridge from the mainland onto the larger Lameque Island, resulting in about a 40-km one-way bike ride for Russ and I to reach the Miscou lighthouse during our Summer, 2003 expedition. The...

  • Just head out into the wilderness

    With New Brunswick's vast undeveloped areas, it is not too hard to get away from it all.On the canoe trip shown here, at the far end of Little Magaguadavic Lake we came upon one of its main infeeds - Stoney Brook. As the name implies, the granite boulders are getting more numerous by the minute as you pass from the lake into the mouth of the brook....

  • Local Treasures

    While traveling from Cape Enrage up to the Hopewell Rocks we passed an interesting sign for an artists studio along highway #915. On our way back, we stopped in. The showroom is filled with all kinds of interesting ceramic pieces, which are for sale at very reasonable prices. We learned from the owner who is also one of the artists, that he and his...

  • That Crazy Dutchman

    Riding down route 2 from Nova Scotia towards New Brunswick, we wanted to stop by Five Island Provincial Park but found it closed for the season. We luckily at least came across this cute little farm where a Dutchman set up a cheese factory. They were quite good too. There are some signs from the road and it is indeed called, "That Crazy Dutchman's...

  • A Cruise on the River

    The Saint John River is an amazingly beautiful river that cuts through some of the most picturesque scenery you can imagine. There are numerous islands, bays, and inlets where you can find enormous private homes, or secluded undiscovered beaches.On a recent cruise on the river I saw a Bald Eagle, a Loon, and countless cormorants and ducks. It's...
