ECT #2, Gallows Cove to (almost) Torbay Beach

Continuing from my last blog post, I did another mini-section of Father Troy’s Trail on the ECT this past week. I started at th same spot I started before — Gallows Cove — but headed south instead of north, making it almost all the way to Torbay Beach and back in about an hour. I could have gone farther if someone had been picking me up at the other end, but knowing that if I went all the way down to the beach I’d have to turn around and climb back up kept me from going any farther! It was a beautiful evening; I found three caches and thoroughly enjoyed my little hike.

Observation at Tapper’s Cove: if you’re going to put money into public art for your community, you should put some money aside for maintenance. Otherwise you get this Ghosts of Murals Past look:

Distance: about 2.5 km one way, 5K return.

  1. Some time, while I’m working with Marnie at Running the Goat Press, you should do the Witless Bay to Tor’s Cove leg (2-3 hrs). I can drop you off at one end, and then you can finish your hike at the Press, which is not far from the trail head.

    • Yeah, that might be cool if we could work it out timing-wise. Can I lure you out on the trail with me sometime? It works so much better if there are two cars, one at either end …
