|Description & Services|
The beginning of this trail is found at the First Chapelle Site in Rocco Point.
Parking at Anne-du-Ruisseau Church, where a guide is available. Walk along Rocco Point Rd. for 1 km. to trail entrance.
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.
Attractions: Nature trail, Salt Bay on one side and La Grande Passe on the other, viewpoint from chapel on top of hill. Acadian history.
