The Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park deliver programs and events inside the park. We’ve been a non-profit society of dedicated volunteers since 2008.
The trails in close proximity to the parking lots and the beach are relatively smooth with some surfacing. Some of these trails are boardwalks and others have relatively smooth gravel surface. Otherwise, most hiking trails are rough and can be challenging.
Typically, on these trails, 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. If you have questions about the conditions of the trails, just give us a call.
Most outings exceed three hours, so do not forget to bring drinking water, something to eat, and appropriate outdoor clothing.
Hiking times are approximate and do not include time to appreciate nature and views from look-offs.
