We're Fundraising!

The Coastal Link Trail will be crushed gravel, paved asphalt, or a shared use on-road trail. In 2020, the first 1.4-km of trail was completed! This segment runs along St. Stephen’s beautiful St. Croix River waterfront.

As a not-for-profit group, we rely on generous donors to help build this trail, 1-km at a time

Upcoming trail projects we’re currently fundraising for are:
  • St. George, NB: 5.2-km of Paved off-road trail
  • Saint Andrews, NB: 1.5km Paved off-road and shared use on-road trail
  • Spruce Lake improvements: 8.4-km gravel off road trail and trailhead
  • Saint John: 5.4-km Shared-use on road (Buffered Shoulder) from Spruce Lake to Rock wood park

Once the trail is established in the communities the trail passes through, the communities will be connected to each other with a shared-use on road route along the highways and secondary highways between each destination. Our goal is to have the trail completed by 2027, but together, you can help us build a dream and make it possible sooner!
