Description

This is a fairly remote area. Access can be complicated due to the fact that this is in a wilderness area with no houses, businesses or towns nearby. In the event of an accident, rescue would be difficult. Cell phone coverage here is sporadic so a sat phone or  and In Reach are a good idea. The reward for the risk and hard work to get in this area is definitely worth it though. The climbing is superb, it has an alpine feel and the shear beauty of this place is quite breathtaking.

Getting There

Go to Sussex then head towards Poley Mountain on the Waterford Road. Stay on this road passing the ski hill and the small community of Cedar Camp. It becomes the Creek Road after you see a sign for Martin Head. Keep driving on the same road passing Walton Lake and Adairs Wilderness Lodge. About 1 k past Adairs you will come to an intersection. Turn left, then right onto the Fundy Trail Parkway access road. This road is not plowed in winter. If there is not much snow you should be able to continue in a vehicle with all wheel drive. If not you have a 16 k ski or snowshoe ahead of you. At kilometer 16 you will come to a large gate across the road. Park somewhere near here. Walk south on the road past the gate. This is the Fundy Trail Parkway. Turn left to the McCumber Brook parking lot and look for signs pointing to Walton Glen lookout. Follow the trail using these signs to the lookout. Just before arriving at the lookout search for a narrow trail marked with orange flagging tape. Take this trail to the bottom of the canyon.
