The Dobson Trail is a continuous footpath through the Albert County wilderness stretching 57.75 km from Riverview NB to the northern boundary of Fundy National Park near Alma NB. It is an all season trail traversing a variety of woodland terrain. It follows along brooks, crosses meadows and travels along some older and new roads for some periods. The trail winds through soft and hardwood stands, crosses a beaver dam, touches a lake, ascends slopes, some gradual some steep, to reach Magnificent look-outs including Prosser Brook Ridge, the new Kent Hills power generating windmills and the spectacular Hayward Pinnacle. The Dobson Trail meets Fundy National Park at the Old Sheapody Road and joins the Park’s Laverty Falls Trail just west of the Broad River via the Dobson Link Trail.
This site was set up to allow Trail users to get information, share stories, arrange for hiking partners, report issues with the trail and to meet other Dobson Trail lovers.
