Once parked by the bridge (before crossing it) cross on foot and immediately follow a dirt road up to the right. This will lead to a small camping area and then turn into a foot path. There are two sets of falls so make sure you explore both. The falls are at N 45° 33.9444 W 065° 13.951

Directions:

From Sussex head to Poley Mountain. Just past the hill not too far take the road to Adairs Lodge. Pass Adairs Lodge. Just after you pass Crawford Lake on your right take the Little Salmon River road for about 2kms. Then take the road to your left for about 4.5kms when you should come to a bridge that crosses over the Quiddy River. I wouldn't suggest driving over the bridge because it's a bit washed out on either side. Walk across the bridge and find the trail up to the right. Take it to the falls. The hike is relatively short but the drive is long and bumpy. :-)

The swimming hole is bounded on one side buy a clearing with small stones and even a grassy area for laying out a blanket, taking in the warm sun, having lunch. We drove from Moncton via the TransCan, then route 114 to Shepody Rd, then Goose Creek Rd. The roads are dirt/gravel, very passable if you take it slow. We parked on the west side of the washed out bridge and it only took about 15 minutes of walking to get to the lower falls. The trail was easy to spot (starts off as an ATV trail). The hike is easy following the upper ridge along the river. However, the last 2-3 minutes of the hike are very steep where you go down from the ridge to the river level. At this part of the hike, there are large ropes tied to the trees to assist with your descent so you don't slip down the bank. Downside Typical of local watering holes, there was some garbage in the clearing, mostly empty beer cans. Thankfully, no broken glass. At least someone had piled the cans in one spot. Also, this is a popular spot on weekends, so someone must be picking up the cans occasionally because there were only a few in the pile. Comment The biggest challenge is finding the right roads to get to the washed out bridge. The roads are mostly logging roads made of gravel/dirt with no signage, other than signs at Shepody Rd. and at Goose Creek Road. I had printed a very good Google map image at high scale and despite going astray a few times, we were able to make our way to the washed out bridge. Took only 2 hours from my front door in Central Moncton to the swimming hole-How amazing is that!!!

Downside the upper camp site is on a slight angle not much though. rough roads getting there not to rough a car would make it fine. Comment I really enjoyed it. plan on going back this summer. make sure to check out both sets of falls. looks like a great place to swim. also cell service does not exsist here

Downside Difficult terrain to get to the falls after you cross the washedout bridge, a much better trail on the same side that you park on. Comment Another great day!!!
