The Riverfront Trail is a multi-use trail in Greater Moncton, along the shores of the Petitcodiac River. The trail comprises the Moncton section of the Trans Canada Trail, passing through the city's Riverfront Park, and extends to the neighbouring communities of Riverview and Dieppe.[1] Points of interest include Bore View Park, Settlers Green, a Skateboard Park, the Hal Betts Commemorative Sportsplex and the Treitz Haus.[2]

Five kilometres in length on the Moncton side, the Riverfront Trail offer both paved paths and a softer dirt surface for walkers, runners, and bikers. Portions of the trail are cleared for winter running.[2]

The trail, along with several Moncton streets, is used annually for Legs For Literacy, a Boston Marathon qualifying race also featuring a half marathon, 10km, and 5km. [3]
