Love Your Trails, Love Your Community

Riverside-Albert is home to a budding project with loads of potential!

The Shepody Trail spans almost 12 km from Riverside-Albert to Daniel’s Flats in Shepody, travelling along an old rail bed and dykes offering spectacular views of the Fundy Escarpment and the Shepody Bay. The trail has recently been redesignated as a greenway portion of the Trans Canada Trail and is a fantastic location for walking, cycling, horseback riding, and bird watching.

The Chipoudy Communities Revitalization Committee (CCRC) and Friends of Fundy partnered with Plan360 to host conversations with community members and experts in the field to create a local trail strategy for the Shepody Trail. Planning on trailhead signage, community engagement, trail maintenance, and events were key areas of focus in preparation for the Grand Reopening of the trail on June 4th, International Trails Day.

Trail Maps are currently being developed
and will be available here.

If you are interested in volunteering at this event or would like training to become a Trail Ambassador, email community@friendsoffundy.ca for more info.

    The Shepody Trail is a segment of a much larger trail in development: The Shore-Line Trail, which will run 170 km along the Bay of Fundy and connect the major tourist hubs of Shediac and Alma as well as many points in between. Plan360 will be starting work to improve trail infrastructure on the Shepody Trail this spring.
