Description This will be the shorter loop, most often started near the second parking lot, with a short walk down the road to access the coastal trail. This follows the shoreline and rocky outcrops to the point near the entrance to Village Bay. It then continues to the oyster farm, from where we would head inland, up the drainage and further on to the parking lot. As this is done so often in this direction, we may do this trail in the opposite clockwise direction, just for a change, heading inland from the parking lot.
Meeting Place Heriot Bay store parking lot
Departure Time 10:00
Moderate, with pronounced step-ups over the rocks on the coastal section. Somewhat steep on parts of the interior section between the fish farm and the parking lot. Not a bad idea to bring hiking poles.
Costs None
Trip limits 10
Dogs? Yes, if under control. Owners must bring a leash along.
Notes: This will be in winter, but will proceed unless we have severe weather, such as strong coastal winds. Please bring good rain wear, proper footwear for rough walking and spare clothing. this will be a 2-3 hour walk, and will have a stop for lunch, most likely midway at the point.
