Bubbling Sands

Past the cemetery parking lot is a hidden attraction to the right of the wider, main trail entrance. Look for the "Bubbling sands" sign and take the narrower trail in to a small wooded area with a deck.

The bubbling sands is a shallow pond where bubbles can be seen rising from the sand.

Labrador Pioneer Footpath

The Labrador Pioneer Footpath is an older method of traveling between communities along the southern Labrador coast. It is a beautiful walking trail that continues along the coast leading to the next town in Forteau. It's a long walk to Forteau however - about 5 or 6 hours one way (!!) - so you'll need to pack some water and perhaps a lunch. Whales (and sometimes icebergs) can be seen in the Strait of Belle Isle during summer. The footpath continues to neighboring communities along the coast.

Read more about the Labrador Pioneer Footpath at the Southern Labrador Development Association's website.

New Trail

There is a new yet to be named trail connecting Dam Road to the Community Centre Lane. It was recently developed in 2021-22 and will hopefully see more improvements in the near future.
