Pabineau Falls, New Brunswick

Pabineau Falls
If you haven’t been to Pabineau Falls yet, this location needs to be added to your New Brunswick travel list!
Pabineau Falls
Located just outside Bathurst – Pabineau Falls has a rich history as a settlement in New Brunswick and is home to Pabineau First Nation, a small Mi’gmag community.

The falls themselves are impressive to see and with the many flat rocks in the area it offers very easy access for people of all ages and abilities. For those who are a little more adventurous or trying to make an afternoon out of the visit there are great walking trails the go along the river and have amazing viewing spots back toward the falls.

As pretty as this place is in the summer, the fall is also pretty spectacular with the coloured leaves, crisp air off the flowing water and a fresh smell in the air that I can’t really describe but can smell when thinking about it.

If you pack a lunch there are many flat areas to enjoy a picnic, but my recommendation would be to pack a few snacks / water for the hike but to stop at the Pabineau Seafood Restaurant on your way back to Bathurst for a great lunch/dinner.

The food is very good, the people working are incredibly friendly and the portions are definitely a “shareable” size. The Mr and I ordered the clam dinner to share which was more than enough for the two of us and to my surprise was made with REAL clams. Needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back!

    I haven't travelled much within New Brunswick yet, but this is one of the only places I have visited – so beautiful!! I'll have to go back to try those fried clams, they look delicious!
