Great walk, mildly rough but not so much that it’s strenuous. Lots of different views. We enjoyed watching a mink fishing at the waters edge,and all those blueberries......!

We only went a short way on this trail, but did go far enough to see a rock outcropping that looked like a head--surely the "French Head" we'd heard of. This trail is rocky and a bit uneven, but not too long and one you...More

We were able to see our first iceberg off the coast. It was a little ways out into the water but the trails were fun and the day perfect.

Just go. It’s one of the trails that is actually marked. A wonderful up and down hike with beautiful ocean views at every turn. Loved it.

Parked in the small lot near the sign for the beach. Then crossed the beach and followed the trail over a bog. The trail led up to terrific lookouts. 360 degree views and great breeze.

This beach is a must see, although not very big, you can walk a fair distance if you are a hiker. We did not as I wasn't feeling up to it. But the beach, which is rocky, is a good place to visit.

Perfect hike, not to steep, but a bit of a challenge. Long range 360 views that just take your breath away.

Very quiet walk, quite easy over the coast to the beach. Lovely views. Parking near the entrance, do go any just soak up the ambiance.

This trail and the Spiller's Cove trail have diverse environments, some pretty good up and downs, and stunning views of the coves below. A bit challenging but worth it.

The rolling trail offered up plenty of thrilling cliff hugging views. Often narrow and rocky, sometimes a bog, but always something to keep us entertained. In June the weather was wet and cold, so when the sun did peep out on this hike, it was...More
