Hike to Chutes Third Vault

Rate this Adventure Canada Third Vault Falls Trailhead

Added by Danielle Tourigny

Third Vault is the highest waterfall in Fundy National Park, and offers spectacular views. 

The hike begins as a flat path through dense forest. About 1.5 miles in, the trail steepens to go almost straight down. There are several manmade steps to make it a bit easier. Near the bottom you walk through the river a bit until turning a corner to see the gorgeous, cascading falls on your left. We happened to have the entire place to ourselves which made an already magical place even better. The trek back up was definitely difficult, which is why Fundy National Park rates this hike as difficult. There is about 500 ft of elevation in a 0.5mile, but the most difficult part about it was being swarmed by bugs. So seriously do not forget the bug spray. In total, it took us about 2 hours. So grab your camera and enjoy!

Describing snowshoeing trails is always a bit difficult, but luckily the way up Mount Tyrwhitt gets used heavily by people going to Pocaterra Cirque - first thing to remember is to take the first for.
