The first part of this trail (the part highlighted on the map here) is a very beautiful walk that will appeal to everyone. If you go past that part, things get more primitive. Lots of mud and downed trees in that direction. So, when you get to the sign that says the trail continues past the beach, follow the loop back towards the lighthouse unless you are ready to rough it a bit.

My favorite hike! It’s so beautiful, and usually the wind keeps bugs off. If it’s been raining a lot, there will be muddy/flooded parts on the longer trail, but you can get around them by going into the woods.

We walked this with our Bernese mountain dog in September. It was cloudy and windy but we both enjoyed the short hike along the North Atlantic sea. Only saw a few sea birds on the rocks below. A fun hike maybe 35 minutes outside is Sydney NS.

My wife and I love it. Fantastic ocean scenery, great trail with benches all throughout the trail. it's a must see. Rick Stasiuk, Wetaskiwin Alberta Canada T9A 3R2

Gorgeous scenery as you walk the rocky coast line. You'll see beautiful inlets, a cobblestone beach and local fisherman in their boats!

My favourite trail in the Sydney area. Beautiful views of the ocean, many places for rest if needed, many potentially beautiful pictures to be taken, although pictures never do it justice!!! :)
