….gets some clearing and some new signs.
The trail from the sign in to the actual lookout is approximately 1/2 km and today is still snow covered in places.
We are very fortunate here in the Cove that in 1977, Kevin Head and 15 others developed this trail as a part of a summer works program. Later Gordon White, Keith Copper and others involved with the town council at the time (still gathering information on this) made the trail longer and it now goes around the headlands and coves, ending near the Wild Bight Road. This is not a long trail, ( approximately 3 km return) but I find it quite relaxing and peaceful.
This first lookout along the trail is perhaps my favourite. It is a great place to stop and maybe have a cup of tea, being careful not to go too close to the edge of the cliff. Later there will probably be an Osprey’s nest on the top of the sea stack. We have stopped to watch the birds guard the nest when out in our boat.
I absolutely love this lichen on the white spruce and want to decorate them with red berries. 🙂
These windfalls and others have now been cleared.
A beautiful day, sunny and warm on March 31!
The trail as of today is quite slippery in places. Hiking stick(s) and cleats are recommended.
In the background you can see Doctor’s Hill
