The surrounding area is quite interesting and in spots you can see ocean, pastures, a historical church and of course … the occasional airplane!

In addition, stop to have a look at the new feature along the path – a tribute to Hospital Hill – a historical marker that commemorates the medical facility that was used by the RCAF starting in the 1940’s.  It’s a beautiful place of historical interest and quiet contemplation.
