The trail includes groomed paths, boardwalk, dirt road as well as pavement and various access points - compared to the East Coast Trail rating system, I would rate it as 'easy'.

We began at the access point closest to whats known as 'The Three Sisters' a set of three natural rock formations just off a beach area - great start to the trip with lots of photos. There is parking available here as well.

Along the way we encountered the area known as 'Mad Rock' which is amazingly self explanatory when the wind and surf is up. There's also various cliffs and gulches to explore but safety is key - bring your camera for sure.

In addition the trail takes walkers through both French's Cove and Juggler's Cove where there was once a small fishing community - now you can see relics of stone walls, foundations as well as restored root cellars where perishables were once stored.

This trail is not only accessible and marked well but also has rest stops with picnic tables, outhouses and informative plaques. To top it off, there's the wonderful Mad Rock Cafe where you can grab some food, a drink or an ice cream before or at the end of your walk.

The length of your hike will be dictated by the route you choose, a printable map is available online from their website. http://www.bayroberts.com/shoreline.htm

Directions:

Travel Water Street and follow road signs to Mad Rock Cafe, directly across the road is a small parking area or continue along the dirt road and park at the end.
