From the front gate at the Fundy Trail Parkway drive for 18 kilometres. This is 7.5 kilometres past the bridge over Big Salmon River. You will find the parking lot for the Long Beach Brook Falls Trail on the left, just past the access road to Long Beach on the right. From the parking lot you will need to cross the road then turn right. After crossing the access road to Long Beach turn right again and cross back over the main road. The trail enters the woods here and roughly follows the stream.
This is a short trail but well worth stopping to explore. The main feature is the waterfall. The waterfall is about 15 feet high and travels down a slanted rock face. The best part (in my opinion) is the deep pool at the bottom. The pool is deep and about 8 feet deep in places. It makes a perfect place to take a swim on a hot summer day.
The other interesting feature on this trail is the leftovers from an old mine site. You will find old steel pipes, old stove parts, pots and pans, and a large, hinged thing that I couldn't identify. All this can be found along the trail.
