Moncton, New Brunswick, is one of those cities that has an urban feel but a rugged heart. With a number of national parks just outside of the city and a few forests within town, it’s a green-friendly town ripe for exploration.
If you want to get your vacation started on the right foot, bring your hiking boots to Irishtown Nature Park.
The thick Acadian forests are only paused by the picturesque bodies of water in the park. It’s rather wild in the best of ways. See it for yourself as you walk on the well-trodden trails. You may want to start on the Northern Footpath, which begins at the Tankville School, a museum that showcases one of the first one-room school houses of the city. The 1.1 km path then dips and weaves throughout the trees. For something rockier, try the John Howard Footpath that spans 2325 m and is frequented by experienced hikers and snowshoers. If you’d prefer to be in the air than on your feet, head to TreeGO, a zipline adventure park. There are courses designed for everyone from kids to teens to adults, so every member of the family is sure to have a good time.
