A 4.4-mile loop trail enables visitors a pleasant opportunity to understand the biologically and culturally significant sites and fuller context of Fort George. Fort George also boasts a three-mile hiking/biking trail. The trail runs through the interior of the former Fort George golf course, a process that includes returning the golf course land to its natural state and restoring the maritime forest habitat. The trail is suitable for large tired bikes.
