Autumn On The Hummock
On a sunny October afternoon IATNL Chairperson Paul Wylezol made a trail blazing trek to the top of the Hummock, located 2kms southwest of Frenchman's Cove in the beautiful Bay Of Islands. This 1,000ft hill provides fantastic views of the Blow Me Down Mountains, Bay of Islands, North Arm Hills, and Humber Arm.
A week later the IATNL Bay Of Islands trail crew cut the 1/4 mile (400m) trail across the top of the Hummock, opening up the 360 degree panoramic view.
A round trek to the top of the Hummock from Frenchman's Cove takes 2-3 hours. A winter snowshow loop can be done in 3-4 hours. But for now it will take longer, as you have to wait for the snow!
