BackpackingGreat!

Really great time! I did this around the middle of July and there wasn’t one mosquito or black fly! Red rocks-Refugee Cove Refugee Cove-Seal Cove Seal Cove-Eatonville Refugee was my favourite place. Tide was out so I explored to the right of the beach and took in all of the wonderful cliffs and rocks. Stayed at site one at both camp sites and those were both good spots. Lots of places for water which is lovely. I’d consider doing this in 3 nights, 4 days next time to thoroughly enjoy it.

Really great trip to Fishing Cove September 17-18! The hike in was an easy 6km. The hike out is a bit of a climb for the last 1.5km. Quite a few muddy spots, glad to have my boots. It took us 1.5 hours each way, with our camping gear. We slept on tent pad #8 as it was a bit windy and it provided a bit more protection. We had the entire place to ourselves so it was incredibly peaceful. We scrambled up the mountain beside our tent pad to get a sweet view of the cove. Highly recommend this to anyone, but especially people wanting to try out backpacking. Enjoy!

BackpackingGreat!

absolutely incredible. my s/o and my first time back country camping, and I cannot recommend it enough. stunning beach once you get down to the cove. we ended up seeing 1 or 2 seals repeatedly all morning before we left, and saw a bull moose and a female moose on the way back to the car! definitely going back soon. I will say that the trail is an out and back, running from the lower leg of the two trails shown on the alltrails route. the upper branch is closed now

Great trail. Loop is always nice. When entering lowlands cove it's quite exposed to high winds. Keep walking north to French Brook if need be.

Good steep trail. No it is not a loop trail. It is a linear trail.

HikingGreat!

Hiked this trail today - loved it! Challenging, the views are spectacular, no concerns with losing the trail. The horses were not here for us to see but that didn't spoil the hike at all. Walking poles are a must. Didn't camp overnight; hiking in and out was very doable.

Awesome trail! Beautiful hike in, not too hard. Views on arrival are spectacular. Camped in site two, was very cold with wind off the water. Definitely would do again but would stay in site in trees. Hiked up mountain across from sites, has an epic view. Hike back was easy until last two Kms. Highly recommend. This was our first time back country camping and loved it.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Just completed this trail last week. Absolutely loved it for numerous reasons. Challenge, beauty, length all 5 stars. It could be cleaned up a little but the destination is most certainly worth everything this trail throws at you. BRING WALKING POLLS or find a good stick BEFORE you leave. There are some that previous hikers leave but I would never take the chance again. We left ours in the truck and decided to walk without. BAD CHOICE! The horses make it all perfect.

This is a great trail with amazing views!! I definitely recommend this trail, and will do it again next year. As the distances aren't too long between campsites and the hills aren't too bad, this trail is suited to new and seasoned backpackers. There are plenty of water sources along the entire trail. Day 1: Visitor center to Refugee Cove - 3h45m. Took a short break at mill brook. This section of the trail was well maintained with a few hills. There are a handful of points that allow you to see the coast. Stayed in RC1. Sites 1 and 2 looked nice. I didn't see the other sites. Just past site 2 on the right there is a little opening with a great tree for a PCT bear hang. A short walk from campsite to beach with cook kit, made for a nice supper. Day 2: Refugee Cove to Eatonville - 8h15m. the morning was foggy with no views, but it cleared up by lunch. This section was definitely the most scenic. There are so many great spots for photos and take in the views. Terrain was very rooty, but not much for hills. A few short ups and downs. Around km marker 25, got stung in the back of the head. Didn't see or hear any nest until it was too late. Lunch at Big Bald, and a couple breaks. Arrived at Seal cove(original booking) at 3:30pm and wanted to push on. Called and change my res to Eatonville. Arrived at Eatonville at 5pm. I had site 1 which is a great site. Site 2 right beside is great also. Both are right next to a good section of the brook. Had difficulty finding a good tree for bear hang, but as I was the only one in the entire Eatonville campground, there was a great tree in site 2 to use. Day 3: Eatonville to visitor center - 3h15m. It was very misty and wet, so I was motivated to get off the trail before the rain (supposed to hit afternoon). The first and last parts of this section have a couple hills, but the middle is very flat (along brooks), so you can make some good time. Although this section has no coastal views, it is quite pretty in spots. If this was a dry day, I imagine I would have found myself stopping to look at the scenery.

The squirrels here really don’t mess about!! Hang all of your food properly as soon as you get to camp, they won’t hesitate to chew through anything your food is in. Other than that this trail is absolutely amazing!! We did 3 nights in total, doing it in reverse. Parking - Seal Cove - 6.5 hrs Seal Cove - Big Bald Rock - 4.5hrs Big Bald Rock - Refugee Cove - 4.5 hrs Refugee Cove - Parking - 3 hr 15 We were really happy to get the 20k out of the way. Took lots of long breaks for views and really enjoyed the hikes on days 2 and 3. We were all warmed up to get the last day done quite quickly. All the campsites were really nice and the views here are just spectacular!! Would love to do this again, 4 days was perfect! Bringing poles next time though!

Trail was lovely, challenging at times, lots to see. We did an overnight at Murphy’s brook, and hiked out the next day. I highly recommend it.

Narrow, treacherous in spots,lots of up and down . Needs some grooming and hikers need to help keep trail cleaner. Moved to many ankle breakers and trip hazards going in and out .Don't walk over it ,move it if it looks sketchy . If you go down it's gonna be bad getting out. Great hike ,not for the faint of heart. Pollets is a treasure.

The trail is well marked, dry and in great condition. Lots of rocks and roots but to be expected on this Nova Scotia terrain. I loved every minute of the hike and recommend it to those that like a moderate challenge.

I was a little worried about this trail since reviews really said how challenging it was. However, I found it much easier than they said. Took less than 5 hours round trip to do. We camped up in the trees as the wind was insane that night. No horses either :(
