  • This is a great hike to hike to take in but the real gem of the hike is when you walk beyond the lighthouse along the ocean shore amongst the boulders that protect the Cow Head Cove. A really interest...  more »

  • This was my favourite trail during the entire trip. It is located in the Gros Morne area and because I am still dealing with knee issues, there is a limit to the types of trails I can do. This one was perfect because it was groomed, marked and just enough of a challenge for me to push myself while enjoying myself on this lovely trail. It is mostly in the woods and it’s nice to go through the wood and just be still and quite away from some of the more busy places and trails. This location is the historical summer homes area of many of the locals and they must have used the same trails we were! Hiking through the woods is nice when it’s mixed with the open space of a field where the locals’ children once played and there is a chance to walk even further towards the shoreline to see the ocean. If you’re looking for a quiet trail that is a slightly less moderate pace, this is a good one. You probably need ~2 hours.
  • There's nothing interesting or nice about the lighthouse itself but the trail that leads to the rocky shore is worth the effort.
  • A short hike up a well marked trail will bring you to the old iron lighthouse. Passable with a stroller but perhaps not the easiest trip to do with an infant. Signage was good, and informative.
  • Not much to look at but the trail is nice for waking
  • Easy walk with interesting sights.
