Fantastic views and hiking trail. Not for the faint of heart when it comes to heights, as some of the trails are right on the edge of the cliffs here.

We travelled the island and went to all the lighthouses. Each one has a fantastic view for miles and each one is unique in it's own way. Definitely take the time to visit each one!

Wonderful views from this lighthouse. There is a trailhead here with some extensive trails, as well as parking for 6 to 10 cars. Would definitely recommend.

On the first evening of arrival on Grand Manan we visited this part of our destination. It was magnificent, very dramatic. Ancient cliffs are very spectacular and harsh looking. Walking along them was giving me goose bumps. There were lots of beautiful plants and flowers...More
