Spectacle Head TrailCupids
Spectacle Head dominates the northwest side of Cupids harbour. A 100 metre, somewhat rugged climb brings you to the “The American Man” – a stone cairn that has stood in one form or another, on the Head’s bald summit for generations. The view from here out to Conception Bay is spectacular. Those preferring a gentler outing can fork left after the path across the bog and follow a gentler trail behind Spectacle Head to the former site of the Cupids harbor lighthouse. Please use caution near cliffs.
