Looking for a moderate, enjoyable hike that won’t take up too much of your time? Just an afternoon stroll to satisfy the need for salty air in your lungs? If you’re on Newfoundland’s Avalon Peninsula, Burnt Head Path in Cupids is perfect.
Burnt Head Trail is a 2.7 km loop that leaves from and returns to Cupids Haven B&B (which looks gorgeous and I’d love to stay there). You can park in this lot for trail access. It’s a moderate hike. I had a bad back the day we were there and was afraid to push myself so this was the perfect hike.
The entire path, although short, offers breathtaking views. You’ll get to see two bays, a few coves, a small waterfall, and an amazing sea arch. There are benches and picnic tables along the trail. Take it all in. No need to rush.
The arch was so surprising. I did not expect to see such a striking feature of nature on this relatively unknown/unhyped trail. The arch honestly makes this path so underrated in Newfoundland tourism. Here I am to let you know that this is here, it exists, and it’s easy to access! Check it out!
