Description & Services
The beginning of this trail is found at the First Chapelle Site in Rocco Point.

This .5 km long nature trail overlooks the beautiful Salt Bay on one side and La Grande Passe on the other.  
The trail includes a boardwalk. Grass surface. 2 look-offs. 
This is an especially rich birding site because it is surrounded by water- both salt and fresh. The nearby Eel Brook Lake which is ½ salt ½ fresh water also affects the species that can be seen here. 
From Town take Hwy 103 to exit 33, turn R onto Hwy 308, turn L and follow Hwy 3 to 7309, Ste. Anne-du-Ruisseau at the church.
