Trail ends at private property line. So many trails are hard to access because road close by property owners.

Moderately tricky with more rocks than trail. Great views and loads of spots to sit and admire them. Some (not many) parts of the trail are quite overgrown, if you wear shorts you might find it a bit scratchy.

Great trail along the water. Not recommended for weak knees.

Trail was busy today with lots of people relaxing on rocks and enjoying the nice weather. Breeze kept it comfy but when that was blocked by trees it got pretty warm. Lots of big rocks, amazing scenery.

I can't believe I've lived so close to here and not known about this trail sooner! I was blown away by how beautiful it was and spent hours on the rocks along the way admiring the beauty around me. Reminds me a lot of Peggy's Cove but without all the people!!! 10/10 definitely recommend

Lovely short hike with great views, however there was very few shade spots and it was a scorcher day. Went there by bus and there is a 15 min walk before and after to the bus stop, 9B from downtown Halifax.

Loved this little trail. Had fun with the family of older teenagers as we just rock hopped along the coast. Ocean was very rough so the scenery was spectacular with the waves crashing all over the rocks and the different spots between large rocks to explore. Went to the end and just chilled for a while before heading back so quick hike but lots of fun if u like rock hopping as a little diversion from a standard trail.

Pretty easy and beautiful views. If you’re looking for something with the views of Duncan’s cove but without the distance and difficulty, this one is pretty easy and short.

It's closed due to construction.

Beautiful path along the coast. Some rocky terrain so need good boots. Lovely views.
