What’s the winning formula for a perfect fall getaway? How about winding side roads that get you off the beaten path to the very best spots, coastal beaches with golden fall grass that stretch for miles, more choices for fun than you can pack in, and great meals you’ll never forget. 

Throughout the area are many safe choices for hiking, biking, boating, or just getting some fresh air and a fresh perspective. 

You can admire the beauty of nature with colourful leaves everywhere in the region – especially at the Jacquet River Gorge as well as at the Pabineau Falls.

If you’re looking for something different, check out Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail, a 150-km route that takes you all the way from Bathurst to Mount Carleton Provincial Park.  Or take off on a mountain bike to enjoy approximately 15 kilometres of single-track trails in Bathurst.

Walking anywhere in Bathurst will likely bring you to La Promenade Waterfront where you can start holiday shopping early, grab something to eat or get a tasty drink at one of the local taprooms, like Four Rivers Brewing or 13 Barrels Brewing. Alternately, there are plenty of benches to simply take a moment and soak up the scenery.

Kaffeine Espresso Bar in Bathurst makes seasonal drinks a tradition while in Petit-Rocher you’ll find plenty of comfort food and a comfortable bed at Auberge D’Anjou-Cocooning Café.

In fact, make sure your plans include lots of days in this wonderful area of New Brunswick. And make sure you don’t forget your camera because you won’t want to miss out on capturing every memory-making moment.
