As its name suggests, this is a good place to see these famous fish hawks. From Route 1, take Route 201 and drive along the southern coast of Trinity Bay. This is a popular summer cottage area, and there’s a park with a sandy beach at Bellevue Beach.
Nearby is the spectacular Chance Cove Coastal Hiking Trail. The trail winds through the forest touching down at the far end of Chance Cove Beach, which can be used as another access point. From the beach, the trail continues uphill and onward, offering spectacular views of the coastline as well as providing access to hidden sandy beaches, scenic lookout points, and sea caves.
Take a side trip to Arnold’s Cove and visit the Drake Heritage House. When nearby Haystack was resettled in the 1960s, the owner Frank Drake refused to leave. He lived there an additional 12 years before the home was floating by barge to its present location. Its interior is like a time capsule of the era and now serves as the community museum. Several hiking trails in the area also provide scenic lookouts and coastal views.
