Before making the trek to the Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve, individuals are asked to meet at the Centre roughly 30 minutes before, around 12:30. It's a great spot to stop and ask questions, use the washroom, and grab a sweater!

We traveled to this are to visit Mistaken Point which starts with a visit to the Interpretive Centre. The introductory film gives a great overview of the site. You must make a reservation to ensure that you can go not the tour, so call ahead.
