Brigus Lighthouse Trail

Brigus Lighthouse Trail is another great hiking trail that I recently explored.  The small town of Brigus is loaded with quaint character and is one of the few towns on the Avalon Peninsula to have retained so many historic buildings. 

 
I'll be back again another time to delve more into its stories and architectural charms, maybe after a little snowfall just before Christmas?  Or stroll its winding lanes in the summer when the lupine is in bloom?

Rock walls were plentiful in Brigus

When I arrived at the end of Battery Road the parking area for the trail was closed off so I drove back down the hill and parked in a public lot near Harbour Pond.  It was only a 5 minute walk back up to the trailhead, a nice warm-up for the 5km jaunt out to the lighthouse.


The trail is steep in spots, but easily managed.  Bring a hiking stick to make those hills easier, and wear supportive footwear not sneakers or sandals!


It was a lovely day for December, and I plugged along without overheating or tiring too easily.  Sweeping views of Brigus Bay and Conception Bay were plentiful, but next time I'd like to hike it earlier in the morning to be able to photograph the town.

See the lighthouse on the other side of the valley?


A view of the lighthouse encouraged me to keep going down into a deep valley.  Watch your step and take your time, the grade was steep and momentum could easily result in a nasty fall.


I made it to the final hill before the lighthouse but the temps were dropping and the wind was picking up so I smartly decided that at about 4km I had gone far enough and should leave the full hike for another day.

Climbing back out of the valley was strenuous, but I kept myself preoccupied by looking for smooth pieces of shale to pocket for painting projects.


Brigus has a few trails on the other side of town, and shops and museums to explore. Maybe I'll have a buddy with me next time and we can make a whole day of it!


A quick shout-out to Skipper Bill for his comments on my Fox Harbour post.  Thanks for the tips!  Here's his YouTube video showing the artillery batteries at the end of the hike that I hope to get to next time.

  4. Best Movers Companies Barb, I completely agree with you... After all, having to check yourself out is just too much...especially if you have more than one or two items. I no longer do tiny amounts of shopping because Hubby finds it difficult to go around most days. And his recliner broke in the early hours of today, when he woke up at 3 a.m. to have a better night's sleep in it. As a result, we'll have to go on the lookout for another.

    That was the most comfy one we'd ever found, and it was from Costco... But it only lasted 28 months...so we'll have to look for one with a warranty. So you can probably anticipate what we'll be doing until we find it!! Oh well...at the very least, we should be able to pay for it!! And today, lo and behold, my very pricey blood pressure medication only cost half as much... Hallelujah!! I'm sure it won't be long before the present leader raises the price... But it's especially welcome this month!! I'm sending you hugs as well!
