Hike Destination Index

The Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO GeoPark has countless opportunities to explore. Visitors to Parrsboro are often under time constraints and deciding where to go is a challenge. Which hike should you embark on? What beach might provide the most amazing scenery? Making a decision is difficult no matter what. Feel free to contact me with questions and to book a personalized tour

This page is updated on a regular basis to provide insights into hikes and excursions along the Parrsboro Shore. The index below will grow with each hike and guided tour recorded. I invite you to click on individual links that will take you directly to the blog entry to provide you with insights and images through the seasons. Sit back, pour yourself a favourite beverage and peruse the options:
