Economy Falls

Hiking in Economy & Five Islands

The most challenging hikes in the area are around Economy Falls. The 6.5km (one way) Devil's Bend Trail begins 7km up River Phillip Rd toward the Cobequid Mountains and follows the river to the falls. The 20km-loop Kenomee Canyon Trail begins at the top of the falls and twists up the river to the headwaters in a protected wilderness area.

Note that on the latter option several streams must be forded; there are designated campsites, making this a good two-day adventurous trek.
