Swallowtail Lighthouse - official end of coastal trail. Cables and a well-whipped Canadian flag indicate a perpetual 'breeze' on this point!! We had a great two and a half days of hiking - trail is well-marked by red markers or blazes and the NB guide books we used added trail highlights and details we wouldn't have wanted to miss. Spectacular and oh yes, grateful we were off the trail an hour before the weather pattern changed, bringing steady rain.
An hour before sunset @hammerhead finds us another 'perfect' campsite. A day with solid 8+ hours hiking. After Dark Harbour- Money Cove, Indian Beach, The Whistle, Northern Head, The Bishop, Ashburton Head. Definitely more ascents and descents on the east side with all these coves! But the beauty keeps us in awe.
Lookout to Dark Harbour- as cautioned, this view is close to the cliffs- access to the rim is very steep and slippery as @hammerhead discovered! Beyond here the trail descended to Dark Harbour Brook, first water source since starting hike over 24 hours earlier. We had been given a heads up so had carefully monitored the 6 litres we started with.
