“A naturally occurring rock archway”
A naturally occurring rock archway, on the Spurwink Island Path of the East Coast Trail. The arch can be viewed from various angles, and you can walk across it. It can be the highlight of a day hike along the rugged coast of the Avalon Peninsula. The arch is on the Spurwink Island path of the East Coast Trail, about 6 km (3.7 mi) north of Port Kirwan. This path is classified as 'difficult'. Park at small church at the end of Port Kirwan. The trailhead is at the rear of the church. Alternatively, start at Aquaforte River, parking in the lot near Hagan's Hospitality Home. It is about a 17 km (10.6) hike to Port Kirwan, and takes you right past the Berry Head Arch. A detailed map of the Spurwink Island path is available from the East Coast Trail Association (http://eastcoasttrail.ca/). The East Coast Trail Association is a registered charity, member-supported and volunteer-based. The East Coast Trail is a coastal hiking experience that takes you to the outermost reaches of North America. This wilderness hiking trail provides hikers with a special blend of wilderness adventure, outstanding natural beauty, wildlife, history, and cultural contact. The paths of the East Coast Trail take you past towering cliffs and headlands, sea stacks, deep fjords, and a natural wave-driven geyser called the Spout. It provides access to abandoned settlements, lighthouses, ecological reserves, seabird colonies, whales, icebergs, world's southern most caribou herd, historic sites, a 50-metre suspension bridge, two active archaeological dig sites, and many more attractions. It offers a wilderness paradise of boreal forest, fresh clean air and quiet solitude, all combined with the raw natural beauty of the rugged Atlantic Ocean.
