This is the description to get to the top of Peak Tenerife, a small rock outcrop that overlooks the Aspy Valley. He view is magnificent up there and there is a logbook to enter your comments.

You will see the peak as you drive on the highway. Park where you are almost perpendicular to the peak.

You enter a mixed forest and the trail is well established. The trail goes through a mixed forest as you are getting close to the base of the peak. After only a few minutes, you are at the base of the peak and the hike will be strictly uphill and very steep in some areas until you reach the peak. The forest in the uphill section is quite open and you soon have some viewpoint to look at if you turn around. Near the end of the trail, you will scramble a small scree slope. At the top of the scree slope you walk on a kind of ledge until you climb the final few meters on the top of peak Tenerife. From the scree slope to the peak there are no trees so the views are terrific in any direction.










Directions:

Make you way from Cape North towards Bay St Lawrence. Drive 4.2km on Bay St Lawrence Rd to a large parking area on the right. the peak and trail is on the left marked by some flagging tape
