Hiking "High Head Trail" on the Hages Lane side of the trail is a totally awesome experience. You disappear from any sign of civilization within seconds of starting the hike and you're soon at the ocean's edge.

Prospect – High Head Trail. The trail is protected by the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
We revisit this part of Prospect every year, as it’s such an amazing hiking trail next to the ocean’s edge. Below is a VR scene (iPad compatible) mid trail. Click and drag to view the scene in 360˙
It’s popular with locals, too, as they come to fish from the edge of the rocks.
I find it amazing just how the vegetation manages to survive in this hostile environment, but it does. Soil in its usual sense doesn’t exist here, it’s more decaying plant and water than anything between the granite rock. Plants obtain moisture from the ocean fog and peat.
Ambitious hikers can find a shear rock face at the farthest point.
