Nova Scotia has a wealth of provincial parks. Some are small picnic areas, and others are large parks with a variety of facilities. Taylor Head is located southwest of Sheet Harbour, on Route 7 in the Eastern Shore region. Taylor Head Park occupies a rugged wind-swept peninsula that juts 6 km into the Atlantic Ocean. The park's hiking trails and walks provide access to a variety of natural habitat, interesting geological features, and wildlife species, scenic look-offs, secluded beaches and 16 km (10 mi.) of unspoiled coastline. The park has several small picnic areas and boardwalks to a beautiful white-sand beach with change houses. There are several back-country hiking trails (some looped), 2 to 8 km (1.5 to 5 mi), along Mushaboom Harbour and the end of the peninsula. Brochures are available; an interpretive display is also on site. Group use is welcome.
