Although this trail is very short, a mere “leg stretcher”, it is quite fascinating. From this rocky granite headland jutting out into the sea, you can watch the ocean crash against the rocks or catch a glimpse of whales offshore as fishermen tend to their lobster traps - daring to come so close to the rocks. Notice the twisted stunted trees - known as “krummholz” - and the leathery leaves of the bayberry. Plants here have adapted to this windy, salt -sprayed coastal environment.

Caution: Keep away from cliffs during high wind and waves.
