A great companion for exploring the trail system in and around Fredericton

From the back:

The beautiful little city of Fredericton has always welcomed walkers.  Now, criss-crossed with abandoned railway lines transformed into groomed trails, it's a paradise for the self-propelled, whether on foot, on skis, on bicycles, or in wheelchairs.

Trails of Fredericton, published in association with the Fredericton Trails Coalition, describes the 50-kilometre linear park system built on the former railway network.  It also includes paths in five parks, the University of New Brunswick Woodlot and Game Refuge, and Kingswood, a privately owned recreational development.

Bill Thorpe is a lifelong resident of Fredericton.  A retired history teacher, his second career is helping build and promote the city's trails.  He is a founding member of the Fredericton Trails Coalition, which has spearheaded the linear park development.  Trails of Fredericton is introduced by Patrick Polchies, a Maliseet outdoorsman who has retraced the canoe and foot trails of his ancestors.
