Visit a Black Hole in the Fundy Galaxy this weekend

From captain Paul Gaudet:

“Greetings enthusiasts, The hike this Saturday, June the 12th will have to be changed because we cannot go to N.S. I will be leading a hike to the Black Hole in Fundy National park this Saturday. It is a 10 Km linear hike which I would qualify as moderate with one long hill out of the Black Hole. The tread is good with minimum roots and rocks, mostly along a shady cart path with many deciduous trees. Lunch next to the Salmon river and the “Black Hole”. Meet time is 10:00 at Petro-Can next to Point Park or park Info Center at 11:15. Call Paul @ 588-3034. Cheers!! P.S. the short road in to the trailhead is/was a bit rough, but should be fine if we take our time.”

June 13th Sunday – Hike from Riverview, across the bridge to the causeway, loop back to bridge and return to Riverview. Easy, 8 km, 2 hours. Meet at Chocolate River Station, Riverview at 1:00 pm. Contact Marilyn at 386-6579.

An update from Paul Gaudet on the June 5th/Saturday hike

Greetings members. This Saturday’s hike will be changed due to uncertain water levels on the Little Salmon River. New hike from the suspension bridge at the Fundy Trail Parkway to Long Beach and on to Seeley Beach. This hike is on the easiest part of the Fundy Footpath, but is rated a moderate plus to strenuous 9 km hike. We will have to pay admission, but if 10 or 12 or more we get group rates, so we will all go in together at the east entrance. We will have to move cars. Please note the meet time change to 9:00 A.M. at Centennial Park Rotary entrance on St George Blvd or at Adair’s Lodge at 10:15-10:20. This hike is really nice, but there are hills. No water shoes are necessary. Call Paul at 588-3034
