  • Water Bottle 
  • Snack 
  • Walking Stick (optional)

Trail Tips: 

  • Watch out for the rare and beautiful Lady Slipper flower that can be found blooming along the trail in the spring.
  • Hike the Shore Line Trail (accessible from Trail Head #1) at low tide for the best view. 
  • Want to know more about the trail? Check out the video about the trails at the Cape George Heritage Museum! 
  • The Bubbly Springs trail gets very muddy after a rainstorm.
  • When hiking from the Cape George Lighthouse (Trail Head #3) to Ballantynes Cove Wharf (Trail Head #2), you can leave a vehicle at the wharf and drive up to the lighthouse to begin your hike so you don't have to walk up the mountain or back the trail.
