Getting There

The Burnt Head trail is located between the Anglican Cemetery and Cupid’s Haven B&B, at the top of Burnt head Loop. The route follows coastal paths in a loop of just over 2.5 km (gentle ups and downs and some stairs). Along the way you’ll find woods and meadows, ocean vistas, a sea arch, picnic tables, a waterfall and traces of previous settlements as well as blueberries when in season. Please use caution near cliffs. Entrance and exit are located by the road and there are signs posted on the trail for easy directions. At beginning of trail is an outhouse and a map outlining the trail. There are short cuts outlined on the trail to lead you back to the main road, these are outlined by "back to vehicle" signs and the other sign will indicate to continue on the trail.

Trailhead is well marked behind Cupid's Haven B&B in Cupid's

Short, easy hike with great views and ideal picnic spots. Blueberries for picking in late August and early September.

Beautiful coastal trail! To and from the coast is just ATV trail, but once to the coast, the sights are beautiful. Easy trail good for all ages and skill levels.

Gorgeous easy hike. A couple of hills but nothing serious. A few muddy spots but feet remained dry. One set of stairs and a few areas with boardwalk. Views are spectular!!! Would definitely recommend this hike.

Completed this trail with my 3 kids (6, 10 & 12), and 2 dogs. Perfect conditions today! Views were amazing! This was my first time there. It's a loop, so we went in on the woods side, and came back on the shoreline. Signage is clear, trail is in great shape, garbage bin located at the entrance, lots of places to sit and take in the magnificent views! Will definitely be back :)

Lovely spot, never seen a soul while I was there. Took my dog, little waterfall for him to grab a drink, took some nice photos of the shoreline. Little over 3km on my Apple Watch. Would do again.

We got lost at one point. At the beginning of the trail there’s a spilt and the signs say you can go either way, but the way we went didn’t seem to be as well signed
