Red Head

Synopsis: A walk to Red Head, at the far eastern corner of Five Islands Provincial Park takes the traveller to sand dunes blown by the arid winds of the Fundy rift valley during the Dinosaur era, now preserved in sandstone. The lines created by the ancient dunes, and Gaudi-like structures formed as the cliffs have weathered, are both fanciful and exquisite. Make sure to check at the Park office to time your walk with the tides!
