Black Beach, true to its name. This black sand is quite "rare in this part of the world....most commonly found in areas of volcanic activity. The black sand at Black Beach is most likely caused by the presence of magnetite within the dark sedimentary rocks." So interesting to see - brought some home with us in a little baggie. From here we could have walked back to our car the way we came but we opted for the shorter (less pretty) route on a road. For a total hike of about 9 km.
For real! Someone who must visit this 'edge of the cliff' often has positioned and well-secured these brilliant Adirondack chairs to sit and enjoy the view - and share with other hikers. The photo was not altered - quite colourful in this lighting! @hammerhead is enjoying this bit of luxury.
My AllTrails App; Hiking Trails of New Brunswick, written by Marianne Eiselt & H.A. Eiselt; and recommendations from 'locals' all contributed to our trail choices. The weather wildcard was not an issue: a gift in any season! The trailhead for our longest hike - Split Rock and Troy's Trail - was on the other side of the rock outcropping: inland from the tanker ship, which we could see from so many angles from different viewpoints I was wondering if there was more than one of them!
