Schooner Cove Trail
Rated - moderated. Traveling through several different mircozones of the Labrador coast, the walk to Schooner Cove provides excellent opportunities to examine the local flora and berries. Schooner Cove was first occupied by the Maritime Archaic people. During the last 400 years it was been home to whalers and fisherman from Europe and Newfoundland. Large iron boilers and bits of machinery scattered along the beach are the remains of a whaling factory established in the early 1900's.

The offshore lines appearing in the map above which purport to delimit the offshore area of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador have no legal effect. Apart from the boundaries established pursuant to the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Accord Implementation Act, which include the line established pursuant to the 2002 award of the arbitration tribunal concerning the delimitation of portions of the offshore areas between Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia, there are no agreed boundaries between the offshore areas of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Canada, the Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Quebec or the Nunavut Territory, and no such boundaries have been established under statute, regulation or agreement. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has made these facts known to Google.
The walk to Schooner Cove goes along the coast. Watch for whales, icebergs, seabirds and "whistlers". Examine the flora with the aid of The Labrador Straits Botanical Guide and maybe even pick a few redberries, archaeological sites.
