Situated in New Brunswick’s Appalachian Mountain region, Sugarloaf Provincial Park is the perfect destination for a family-friendly getaway or wilderness adventure.

Hike to the summit of Sugarloaf Park’s 305-m (1,000-ft.) mountain and see the city of Campbellton spread out below. The junction of Chaleur Bay and the Restigouche River create a waterscape of exceptional beauty, and the rolling hills of the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec on the other side of the water will have you in awe. This park contains more than 25 km (16 mi.) of hiking and biking trails, with the 4-km (2.5-mi.) Terry Fox Trail winding around the base of the mountain.

Sugarloaf’s downhill bike park offers Atlantic Canada’s only lift-service mountain bike park. Trails range from beginner to expert, and they’re jam-packed with berms, table tops, drops, step ups and wooden features. The park’s spacious ski lodge features a licensed restaurant. The lodge is available for business meetings, weddings and other private functions.
