Located southwest of Sheet Harbour, this park occupies a rugged wind swept peninsula that juts 6 km (3.7 mi) into the Atlantic Ocean. The park's hiking trails provide access to a variety of natural aspects, interesting geological features, wildlife habitat, scenic lookoffs, secluded beaches and 16 km (10 mi.) of unspoiled coastline. As with other extensive trail networks, park users are advised to advise someone of where they are and when they plan to return home. Hikers should wear sturdy footwear and dress in layers to adapt to changing weather conditions. Remember to respect this natural area: keep dogs leashed and pack out all garbage. Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park take an active part in overseeing park activities and offer public events such as hikes from June to December. Some cross country skiing opportunities in winter.
