In 2016, I flew into Halifax, and decided to hit a few different Canadian provinces and check off a few waterfalls in each province. Third Vault Falls in New Brunswick was the most memorable waterfall I visited in the province (out of three). As I was driving through Riverside-Albert, I knew there was another waterfall near the town, and decided to visit it. I had already hiked to Third Vault Falls that day, which is a moderately strenuous hike, so I was a bit worn out.
I had also read that Crooked Creek Falls was a moderately strenuous hike, but I decided to check the waterfall off the list anyway. It is definitely a shorter hike than Third Vault Falls, but in that short distance, it is a steep downhill hike. On the return, it is a steep uphill hike. My legs were definitely worn out after those two hikes.
Crooked Creek Falls might not be worth it is as much as Third Vault Falls. It is a beautiful little waterfall, but it isn’t as photogenic as others. It’s a waterfall that I would recommend to true waterfall lovers, though I did notice some people posting about swimming in the creek, so that may be something for you to enjoy.
- Route 114 leads from Moncton to Fundy National Park. When you come to the town of Riverside-Albert (headed south, let’s say), you’ll turn right onto Forestdale Road.
- After 1.1 miles, you’ll find a parking area. I believe it was on the right side of the road.
- On the left side of the road, the trail leads downhill to the creek and waterfall.
Accessibility: 3/10 (moderate/strenuous)
Length of Hike: 0.3 miles round-trip
