Pabineau Falls

New Brunswick

On the territory of the Mi'kmaq Pabineau Nation, this pretty waterfall tumbles down the Nepisiguit River, about 14km south of Bathurst. The drive here is scenic and many people picnic on the banks. Check with locals about conditions before swimming.

Note: ask the tourist office for directions, as there is limited signage. It's on property owned by a former paper mill (you enter at own risk etc).
