This article is a part of my East Coast Trail on Bing Maps series.
Deadmans Bay Path runs from Fort Amherst to Blackhead.
2017 update: clicking on the images below will take you to Bing Maps, but no longer to its ‘Bird’s Eye View’ feature, as the East Coast Trail aerial views were removed from Bing Maps in 2017.
The North trailhead is located in St. John’s, near Fort Amherst.
The trail immediately climbs the South Side Hills.
On top of the hills you’ll pass many ponds.
Take the long way down to Freshwater Bay.
Take a left and have a look at Gunners Cove.
Cross the boulder beach at Freshwater Pond.
Explore the trail leading onto Small Point, AKA Sprigg’s Point. (now closed off)
Navigate the forest and coves all the way to Blackhead.
The South trailhead is located on the coast in Blackhead.
