Cape Split Provincial Park Reserve

Cape Split Provincial Park Reserve is a 447 ha natural environment park located in Scots Bay, Kings County. The park is considered a provincially significant coastal landmark overlooking the Bay of Fundy and is a popular hiking spot. In addition to hiking, the park offers picnicking and opportunities to view wildlife and the impressive action of the Bay of Fundy tide. In 2013 a new parking area was opened. Vault toilets exist at the trailhead only. The current trail is approximately 8 km (5 mi.) one way, with a return travel time of four to five hours. Users are advised to stay on the trail, wear sturdy footwear and layered clothing, and carry plenty of drinking water. This is a day-use park, operating on pack-in/pack-out principles. No camping is permitted.
Users are reminded that Cape Split is a “work in progress” and that trail development, additional services, and interpretation features will be evolving over the next few years.
