"A challenging mix of Acadian woods and mountain peaks, Mount Carleton has more than 17,000 ha (42,000 acres) of pristine wilderness waiting for today’s explorer. Our habitat is home to more wild animal species than any other part of the province. At least 100 different types of birds and 30 species of mammals live here. A botanist’s eye will also discover a number of rare plants, including Alpine blueberry and Bigelow’s sedge on the slopes of Mount Carleton itself.
Hiking is a must-do at this provincial park. From a wheelchair-accessible trail at Williams Falls, to challenging mountain hikes, our 11 trails are waiting to be explored. On a clear day, from the top of the Maritimes’ highest mountain, you can see 10 million trees.
Mount Carleton, 820 m (2,690 ft) the highest peak in the MaritimesMount Head, 792 m (2,589ft) off the beaten track, but worth it!Mount Sagamook, 777 m (2,549 ft) our most challenging hikeMount Bailey, 564m (1,850 ft) an easier climb and great view."
Spending time at Mount Carleton has always been one of the top highlights of our travel adventures. Being from the area, I feel blessed to have such natural beauty in this part of the world.
In fact, after visiting 30 or so countries to date, it still ranks as one of my favorite places to visit anywhere.
When you plan your adventure, consider end of July through September until the park closes approx. October 15. The flies are tolerable, it is warmer, the hiking, fishing and scenery is stunning.
You will always see wildlife, look hard enough and pay attention and you will be amazed.
Stay quite and look around, listen.
