High Head Trail is located in Prospect Bay, Nova Scotia. The trail leads along the coast guiding hikers through numerous look-off points, with beautiful coastal views. The trail is prone to sogginess, especially after the rainy season, and after the beach does involve some navigation over rocks and through overgrown trails, before leading along the coast to the community of Prospect. Parking Information: Parking is available at either end of the trail, at the end of Hages Lane or off Prospect Bay Road. Best parking is at Hages Lane at the end of the cul-de-sac, however take caution not to block any residential driveways in the area.

Great trail for hikers of all levels. The end of the trail is a beautiful lookout and is spectacular to see, especially for somewhere so close to the city. Make sure to keep to the left when you start out on the trail as it can be easy to get off the main trail veering ever so slightly right and you’ll get into some thick brush.

Great hike, beautiful views. Recommend good hiking boots if you want to explore too far the terrain is very rocky.
