Mount Carleton

They say you can see 10 million trees from the top of Mount Carleton. At 820 m (2,690 ft.), it’s the highest point in the Maritimes. A must for the nature enthusiast, Mount Carleton Provincial Park encompasses 17,000 hectares (42,000 acres) of unspoiled wilderness in the heart of northern New Brunswick. A chain of three lakes and two rivers can be explored by canoe, while hikers have access to more than 62 km (38.5 mi.) of trails, ranging from easy to challenging, on four different mountains.

Birdwatchers may encounter the rare Bicknell’s Thrush at higher elevations, and botanists will revel in the diversity of alpine plants. Without a doubt, a stay at Mount Carleton Provincial Park brings the thrill of outdoor adventure within reach of people of all abilities.
