Highlights

Highlight: NB Trail - Noonan Section, NB
The NB Trail was established when the railway that used to pass through New Brunswick was removed. This explains why the trail is frequently raised on a causeway through marshes and why it is largely a straight line. It passes through the Portobello Creek National Wildlife Area as well as Grand Lake Meadow, which creates stunning sceneries along the route with abundant wildlife. The vegetation is predominately maple, oak and pine trees, interspersed with marshes and ponds, creating a very colourful array of fall foliage during the month of October. To top it off, the trail ends at the shores of Indian Lake. Combine the wildlife, the breathtaking colours, the low technical rating of the trail and the destination into one package, and you have a perfect Sunday afternoon, foliage peeping family outing, perfect for the whole family.

Waypoints

1. Trailhead (0 mi)
There is no need to air down for this, however if you wish to do so, drive down the trail for 2000 ft (600m) and you will have a clearing to air down without obstructing others on the trail.

Directions to Trailhead

From Westmoreland St. in Fredericton, take Route 105 for 6.5 miles (10.5km) to Gilks Road. After about 400ft, turn right onto the trail. The trail intersects Gilks Road at this point, as such the trailhead is merely the intersection of this trail. From Oromocto, take the Burton Bridge and head towards Fredericton. Follow Route 105 for 5.7 miles (9.2 km) until you reach Gilks Road.
