Sugarloaf Provincial Park
Situated in New Brunswick’s Appalachian Mountain region, Sugarloaf Provincial Park is the perfect destination for a family-friendly getaway or wilderness adventure.
Hike to the summit of Sugarloaf Park’s 305-m (1,000-ft.) mountain and see the city of Campbellton spread out below. The junction of Chaleur Bay and the Restigouche River create a waterscape of exceptional beauty, and the rolling hills of the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec on the other side of the water will have you in awe. This park contains more than 25 km (16 mi.) of hiking and biking trails, with the 4-km (2.5-mi.) Terry Fox Trail winding around the base of the mountain.
Sugarloaf’s downhill bike park offers Atlantic Canada’s only lift-service mountain bike trail. Trails range from beginner to expert, and they’re jam-packed with berms, table tops, drops, step ups and wooden features.
During the summer visitors have the option of staying in one of the park’s yurts or camping in the 76-site wooded campground with playground and tennis courts (includes 8 full-service sites).
The park’s spacious ski lodge features a licensed restaurant. The lodge is available for business meetings, weddings and other private functions.
Sugarloaf is just as much fun in the winter as it is in the summer, offering plenty of winter activities to keep you busy until the last snowflake falls. Get ready for 12 Alpine ski trails, a terrain park with half-pipe, sliding hill, ice skating and trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
Here are just some of the events planned at the park this summer. When you get there, make sure to stop at the visitor centre and ask our friendly staff about the day’s activities!
