Great hike with amazing seascapes. The views from the trails were wonderful. I can only imagine the history of this place.

Hiked with a large mixed group of family and friends -- ages ranged from ten to early sixties, with a wide span in physical fitness. One fit couple with an eighteen month-old in a carrier (who started behind the rest) reached Cook's Lookout in 23 minutes. The larger group of ten slowed to the pace of the least fit people, and it took over an hour to get to the top. Stairs at various points helped considerably. Some rocky areas without stairs were a bit of a challenge for a few. From the summit platform, we all enjoyed the stunning views in different directions. Pitcher plants and various other flora added interest to the lower part of the hike. Highly recommended.

They’re currently working on creating a better path/ board walks and what they’ve done so far is great! It’s about 4km round trip but it’s not an easy path. The first half is easy with some nice views but if you want to get to the top it’s a bit of work. Rocky & wet paths. Most likely will get a lot easier after all the work they’re doing is done. Still a great trail!

We were surprised to see some major improvements to this Trail, not the least of which was more parking space at the Trail Head and an even bigger surprise 1/3 of the distance along the Trail. The latter was a large Toilet Facility, complete with skylights.. cf my pic of the Still under construction project. Given the easy and somewhat encouragement sections of the Trail present to motorized vehicles, I.e. destructive Quads, it is hoped they will take the necessary measures to prevent their entry. The distance to the Peak will take an hour or less ... more depending on your pace and stopping for Kodak Moments. For us this is still a must do when in Burin. The view of the large Burin Inlet to the west and the surrounding harbour to the East is impressive . The Best View !

In some respects one might want to call this a mountain, as it is said to be the highest surrounding this otherwise ‘miniature Norwegian Fiord’ style of coastal Newfoundland. The trail begins at the top of what locals would know as Paddy’s Pond. I have written previously with respect to the geological significance of the first part of the path plus provided a batch of what might appear to be ‘aerial pics’. I love the Trail as it provides a longer than normal,hike and one gets to see this area of the Boot, not otherwise visible from the town of Burin. The view from the top is ‘one of a kind’ and well worth the trek.

One of the items on our list when in Burin. You could do this in most weather conditions BUT a sunny day gives you the awesome view. The Trail head starts at the end of a road that used to lead pass a Pond, known as Penny's Pond but since filled in . The Trail is reasonably we'll maintained and easy to follow. You pass through areas of Fir trees, small meadows and eventually a gentle Up to,the top. The Trail from the start to where the elevation changes allows you to see Burin Bay Arm or Inlet, not otherwise visible from the Burin Harbour side. Definitely worth the hour or so you need to allow .. one way.

Access is at the end of a dead-end road just up from he harbour in Burin, Cook's Trail is a easy-moderate walk around ponds, through meadows, alongside Placentia Bay and culminating with a trek up to the top of he lookout. At the top the view was impressive, looking down on the town of Burin, Burin's Bay Arm and Collins Cove. Well worth the time, and, if you are lucky, you might see a moose -- lots of tracks.

The pictures you see herein show a portion of the area where as I young lad I knew as my home. Much of what now serves as an attraction for folks we knew as CFA'ers, i.e. Come From Away, was very much taken for granted by myself. Cooks Lookout was one such specific location. I knew then that some chap known as Captain Cook came to our area, found himself at the top of this Hill and used that elevation to assist him in compiling his navigational and mapping data of this part of our coast. Today there a Trail / Path constructed to the peak where you will find a platform and Flag Pole. The view at the top is truly fantastic, providing you with a 360º view of the coves, inlets and town hereabouts. The trail is is excellent condition, well maintained and average footwear will serve you. Depending on one's condition, you should anticipate a hike of anywhere from 30 - 60+ minutes. The Beginning of the trail offers a MAJOR PLUS for the 'rock hound', Geologist, historian. Almost at the very start of the Path you see a small pond on your Left. To the Right you have an outcrop example of the Wandsworth gabbro, and related outcrops along other portions of the Trail. These rocks were formed during the Cryogenian Period. When the one earth landmass started to separate via plate tectonic forces, volcanic arc formed in the ocean basin, and today we have just small fragments remaining. You will find these fragments as far away as the Arabian Peninsula, North Africa, and just to the Right of this small pond at the start of the hike to Cooks Lookout. how unique can that be ! The trail takes you along the East Side of what I knew as Burin Bay Arm, a very long inlet that reaches all the way in to Salt Pond . . salt water created a name for an area of Burin. Reminds me somewhat of fiords of B.C., e.g. Texaco Inlet. From the top of Cook's Lookout you will see Burin Bay to the south, Wandsworth, Epworth, Burin Bay Arm, Salt Pond to the north, then around to Black Duck Cove, Bulls Cove (part of northern part of Burin Harbour), the two large islands Pardy's Island, a gap in between and we have Step'A Side, then the very long Reach or souther entry to Burin Harbour pass Great Burin and Shalloway. Allow yourself some time at the Top . . . windy day, hang on to your hat. Don't forget to walk the Burin Harbour Boardwalk where you will see further evidence of the outcrops, best near the beginning on Seaview Drive.

Moderate trail wth spectacular views at the top. We climbed it with our two little dogs. Definitely worth the hike.
