The Hopewell Rocks park has an upper site and a lower site, connected by graveled paths and a shuttle service.
The Upper Site
The main parking area and entrance kiosk for the Hopewell Rocks park are situated on the upper level of a bluff to provide our visitors with access to a spectacular vista of the Bay of Fundy before they walk via wide graveled pathways to various viewing decks, our lower site and the beach area.
The Interpretive Centre, Tidal Treasures gift shop and High Tide Café are also situated on the upper site. The park’s Interpretive Centre, High Tide Café, Tidal Treasures gift shop and washroom facilities are wheelchair accessible and our walking trails are suitable for wheelchair navigation. We also offer complimentary passes for the shuttle service to persons with a disability and their companion.
The Lower Site
The lower site is closer to the beach and flowerpot formations. The Low Tide Café, washrooms and stairway access to the beach are located here. The main public parking area is at the upper site, but for convenience, those with physical disabilities may make arrangements at the entrance kiosk to park their vehicle at our lower site. It has a small off-loading and parking area for tour groups and those with disabilities.
Access to the beach area is via stairway, the beach surface is rocky and uneven in some areas, soft and muddy in others. Some pathways are narrow and difficult to manoeuvre.
