Relatively easy trail from the Visitor Centre to Friar's Head overlook. The trail winds through mixed woods, meadows, and has ocean views. During low tide, you can hike back along the beach.

A nice trail in Roosevelt Campobello International Park that leads to Friar's Head and very picturesque views of the bay separating Campobello Island in Canada and the United States. The trailhead is located at the end of the parking lot opposite the visitor center and Roosevelt Cottage. You will see lots of trees/vegetation...likely including raspberry bushes, also two small boardwalks, a little elevation change, a pass through a pretty meadow, and even a short spur trail down to the water and a view of the cliffs. But no doubt the best part is the view at the end.
