Great Head Trail

This one offers up close views of the ocean pounding against the cliffs below, and ends up with a stroll through a beautiful birch forest. To get the trail, you need to walk across Sand Beach, a natural sand beach that is a popular swimming spot.  At the far side of the beach is a channel of water that needs to be crossed which can be a challenge.  People often throw some stepping stones down to provide access to the other side, but the channel constantly changes paths through the sand.  Sometimes the only way across is to walk through the water, so bring a handkerchief to dry your toes!
