Lowlands Cove Trail 5km to the coast from the Cape St Lawrence turn off or 7 km from the camp ground.

 Instead of taking the Cape St Lawrence turn off at the 2 km mark keep straight on after another kilometer you will see the Pollets Cove turn off to your left, after about another kilometer you should see the disused road and trail to the abandon zinc mine also to the left (1.5 km), another 0.75 km takes you to an abandoned farm all that remains is a clearing and some farm implements. The trail proceeds gradually down to the coast, the old road bed is washed out at the brook just passed the abandon farm but is easy to cross with dry feet in summer months. The topographic map indicates a side trail heading to the campsite at Lowlands Cove as of July 2010 this old road appears unused in some time, the current trail takes you to the coast about 0.5km north of Lowlands Cove brook but it is an easy hike along the coast to the brook and campsite.
