Headland Trail description:
- 8 km (5 mi.)
- Difficult trail
- Time: 2.5 hours
This rugged but rewarding, coastline trek to Taylor Head Point provides the maximum experience for the park. The trail returns on the opposite side of Taylor Head where it rejoins the Spry Bay Trail.
Typically, on this trail, you will have to step over protruding rocks and tree roots, walk up and down steep steps of rock, and tread through some muddy wet patches. Conditions are often very slippery. Many people find that a walking stick is very helpful on the rough, slippery trails.
You’ll need sturdy footwear such as walking shoes, hiking sneakers, or hiking boots. Street shoes or sandal-type footwear with open toes and heels are not suitable for these rough hiking trails. Click here for more info on trails in the park.
