Excellent day yesterday exploring Peggy’s Cove Preservation area. The terrain is similar to Polly’s Cove – which is just across the road. There is no single path, so we wandered over granite ridges and struggled through scrubby alder stands and bog when making our way from one ridge area to another.
Up on the ridges, the views to the ocean are wide and excellent.
Just after we pulled into the parking lot another car arrived with 5 people who spilled out of the car, organized themselves and set off within a couple minutes. This area is popular for bouldering and we came across the group later and they were indeed climbing a large rock face on a huge erratic.
The walking is easy on the ridges, but more difficult climbing onto these high areas and other spots are wet and boggy or have no path at all. This area is easy to find along Prospect Road from Halifax. My map has the location and our wandering trail is visible at EveryTrail.com.
