The Riverfront Trail is a short, grassy trail that showcases the longest covered bridge in the world. The trail starts behind the visitor centre at the end of the covered bridge. The trail goes under the covered bridge and along the river, passing by a gazebo and parking lot before looping up to the road.
On my last visit there was a bald eagle hanging out on the roof of the covered bridge. He didn't seem bothered by the crowd that was accumulating. He eventually flew up river to join the other eagles. There were also lots of ducks and geese swimming in the water below the bridge. When walking on this trail enjoy the beautiful views and watch for wildlife!
Where the trail ends on Main Street, it is a short distance on Maple Street to get to the Valley Trail. Turn left on the valley trail to continue to walk up through the river valley. Just before crossing a train bridge on Becaguimac Stream turn right into a parking area and access the Becaguimac Stream Nature Trails.
