Description & Services
Information Portion of the trail, Part 1, crosses several major roads but there are always signs indicating where the 104 Trans Canada Trail picks up again. Passing behind the small community of Sunnyville, along the river's edge, you will pass Mill Dam Pond, a component of a former sawmill. Approximately 3.5 km along, the trail opens upon a clearing which provides a spectacular view of Cooks Cove and Chedabucto Bay. Continuing along the trail, the woods opens again upon a former pasture. Next you will walk along the edge of the famous Salmon River, where you will see, in the distance, Dickies Brook Power Station. At the trails end you will come upon large concrete abutments, looming over the Salmon River, which is also spanned by an iron bridge for vehicular traffic. You may end your hike here or you may continue onto the next portion of this trail.
