French Head to Spiller's Cove to Codjacks Cove

You can join the hike at Spiller's Cove at the end of Slade’s Lane for a shorter hike. Alternatively, drive along Main Street and continue on this road until you reach a dead end close to French Head.

From here an unpaved path continues, so start your hike here from where the hike to French Beach will take about 15 minutes. At French Head is a gully with a rope that allows the more experienced hikers to scale the cliff down to the ocean.

Explore the French Beach and watch for the unusual rock formations such as the Cobra Rock as you continue on to our right through a small valley. The rock formations along the way are alive with imagined creatures.

Along the hike there are many side trails that lead to exquisite views of the rugged coastline.
