Bio

Meat Cove Mountain trail is one of the steepest hikes on the Island and offers a full 360 view of Meat Cove, St. Margaret's Bay and surrounding area from the summit. The first 1.25 km is a very steep climb through dense silver maples and then from there, you can wander on the summit for 2-4 km before heading back down the way you came in.

Drive into Meat Cove and park in the parking lot near the visitors center/cafe. The trailhead is back up the road about 100 meters. There is also a small parking area/shoulder right at the trailhead with room for one or two vehicles.
