Fundy National Park is only an hour from Moncton and it’s a nice drive to get there. I found loads of stops along the way for scenery and they also have a lot of covered bridges that I love. Alma is a cute small town where the National Park starts. You have to be sure to stop at Kelly’s Bake Shop….she has some yummy desserts, but not as good as the General Store in Beersville! 😀 She is well known for her sticky buns, I didn’t know what they were but they looked like a cinnamon bun without the cinnamon or cream cheese icing. They have a sugar glaze that covers a sweet bun. It is good, but compared to a cinnamon bun, I will take the cinnamon bun. 😀 I highly recommend going to the Alma Lobster Shop. I had my first lobster roll here and it was absolutely delicious! The prices on everything were great. My lobster roll was $10.99!
If you are an avid hiker you will like hiking Fundy National Park. I did a couple of the smaller hikes as well as drove around the park for the scenery. I had about a 50/50 success rate of scenery. Some trails were not really worth the effort in my opinion, but that could also be because it was a grey and overcast day. On the trails that were very scenic, they were really beautiful.
Heading back to Moncton take the scenic route and head to Cape Enrage if you have time. I don’t think it is a must see, but if you have the time, they have a great lighthouse and a beautiful view. It is a $5.00 admission and they have different adventures you can do for extra costs. I got here early evening so most of it was done for the day, but I didn’t see anything that I would have done if they were still running.
There is plenty to see and do along the Fundy route. Give yourself enough time to explore all that you can here.
