Three Rivers Scenic Drive (104 km)

Start off by taking Route 406 from Route 1. The Three Rivers Scenic Drive is named for the three salmon rivers in this area. The Robinson's, Crabbes, and Barachois rivers offer excellent sports salmon angling. If you're from outside the province, you'll need a licenced guide to fish here. Ask at any Visitor Information Centre for a list of guides. These guides know the best places to cast a line. Keep an eye and an ear out for the great horned owl that nests in the area.

Where Route 405 joins Route 404

On Route 404 you'll find the coastal communities of Robinson's, McKay's, Jeffrey's and Heatherton. The open fields testify to the land's capacity for growing crops and sustaining sheep. A trail stretches along the coast and gives good views of the windswept shoreline. Like many areas on the west coast, the underlying glacial till is covered with sand.
