Exploring the Mad Rocks in Bay Roberts

The Shoreline Heritage Walk begins at the Mad Rock Cafe. You can walk to an old gravesite, see rock walls, root cellars and former foundations of what would be historic Bay Roberts.

Houses, vegetable gardens and fishing stages once stood. You can use your imagination to picture the activities as you listen to the waves rumble on the shore.

The 8 km Trail developed by the Bay Roberts Heritage Society, offers an opportunity to pay honour to the past, while connecting with nature.

The Trail at the tip of the Bay Roberts Peninsula has three different views of Conception Bay. From the South East side where Fergus Island is located, Coley’s Point, Bareneed, and Port de Grave are in view. From the Eastern tip where MadRock is located, CBS, Bell Island, Harbour Grace Island, and Upper Island Cove can be seen. From the North side at the Three Sisters, the Shearstown Estuary, Spaniard’s Bay, Bishop’s Cove, and Upper Island Cove are in sight (http://www.bayroberts.com/visitors/attractions/).

When finished drop by the Mad Rock Cafe for a wonderful meal of baked beans and toutons.
