As a charity that operates province-wide, Heart and Stroke New Brunswick acknowledges that it carries out its work on the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq and Peskotomuhkati peoples.
New Brunswick is home to some of the most incredible landscapes in Canada. With people travelling from all over the country to see what New Brunswick has to offer, it is easy for those who live in this province to forget what New Brunswick has to offer.
We have compiled a short list of some of New Brunswick's beautiful trails for you to explore.
