Witnessing the Wonders of Wild Cove

Wild Cove

The sandy beach, the rounded rocks, the driftwood creations and the colours of the ocean waves were quite the draw on a visit to Wild Cove via the Cedar Trail in Lark Harbour. The Outer Bay of Islands Enhancement Committee (OBIEC) should be very proud of their trail system. They are hidden gems that more and more Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are getting exposure too! Lark Harbour is well worth the visit to experience the destination trails.

Take Little Port Road in Lark Harbour to the end and park near the Harbour Authority Building. There is a trail head sign and a staircase to begin. It’s about 3.7 KM into Wild Cove return. You can also make it a loop to the lighthouse but the sign cautions the incline.

The forests, flowers, surrounding hills and mountains, pond and the final beach have you just in awe.

Driftwood Structure

There seems to be a never ending amount of driftwood that has come ashore along the beach at Wild Cove and lots of evidence this is a place to enjoy a beach fire.

The sun was beaming, what a great way to begin my trail experiences in the Outer Bay of Islands. Find yourself in Lark Harbour in 2021!
