Places in Northumberland Shore
Kouchibouguac National Park
Beaches, lagoons and offshore sand dunes extend for 25km here, inviting strolling, birdwatching and clam-digging. The park encompasses hectares of forest and salt marshes, crisscrossed or skirted by bike paths, hiking trails and groomed cross-country ski tracks.
Near the bridge to PEI, the Cape Jourimain Nature Centre sits in a 675-hectare national wildlife area that protects this undeveloped shoreline and its migratory birds. Seventeen kilometers of trails wind through salt marshes, dunes, woods and beach. A four-story lookout provides views of the surroundings and Confederation Bridge.
