Shoreline Hiking Trail

Lumsden has been known for its raging seas, a resettled fishing community and unique shoreline. A lot of our history is attached to our shoreline and while you enjoy our hiking trail you can learn about Lumsden's History.


The Shoreline Hiking Trail is a moderate 8.5 km point to point trail from Queens' Head to Windmill Bight Brook over white sandy beaches in Lumsden. This trail is part of the Wondershore Trail System.


Hike through sand dunes and over rocky cliffs where gorgeous ocean views await; icebergs flowing, whales breaching and shorebirds singing.  Many historic landmarks and graveyards from resettled communities of Cat Harbour North and South line the trail.  You won’t be disappointed!  Check a part of our history below...
