Hike to Chutes Third Vault

Canada Third Vault Falls Trailhead

Added by

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!

Magical waterfalls

The Third vault trail is one of our favorites in Fundy National Park and we have done it several times. As being said, the trail is fairly easy except for the last part that goes down to the gorge (and back up!). It's magical to have lunch by the biggest waterfall in the park and the trail can be completed in a couple of hours. If you are into trail running, it might be a great trail to try out.
