Underground Salmon Pool
While visiting Beaver Brook, which originates from the Long Range Mountains and flows eastward to Canada Bay, witness an Atlantic salmon river surfacing from an underground cave. Thousands of years of physical weathering and erosion to the limestone have formed an underground river. Continuous water flow has resulted in the widening of the river channel which has become a resting stop for our prized Atlantic salmon. The only known place in the world where Atlantic salmon swim through underground river caves to get to their spawning grounds. There are also great interpretative walking trails in the area.
