Explore the Fundy Shore in Fall
It’s hard to imagine, but our impossibly high tides get even higher in the fall. The autumn lunar cycle pushes the amazing tidal range to its absolute max. That makes fall, with pleasantly warm days and cool, crisp evening air a great time to experience the glory of our shoreline. Take a visit to Burncoat Head Park in the community of Noel and you can lay claim to standing where the highest tide on record took place.
Take advantage of a handful of annual festivals and events to explore the autumn sights and sounds of the Fundy Shore. During the Fall Festival of Colour, ride a chairlift to the top of Wentworth Mountain and see exceptional views of Wentworth Valley, ablaze in bursts of red, orange and gold. The Eastern Canadian Bluegrass Music Awards promises an evening of great music and entertainment, as we recognize the talents of our many bluegrass artists.
For a real taste of the Fundy Shore and the fall season, visit the Truro Farmers Market, open every Saturday morning. Rain or shine, farmers and artisans gather under the covered market in the heart of downtown Truro and offer a great selection of in-season products from local farms.
Nova Scotia is famous for her fall colours and the canvas of the Fundy Shore offers spectacular leaf-peeping opportunities. While novice outdoor adventures will be content with the miles of trails available in Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, experienced thrill-seekers might want to head for Kenomee Canyon Trail , in the Economy River Wilderness area. You’ll have to ford five streams and the trail is rated “wilderness standard’, but the trek is worth the effort.
