Tinkers Point Path – structure conditions:

Be advised that hikers using Tinkers Point Path will encounter deteriorated structures over a kilometer section between Nicks Cove and the Bight. (km 2.9 to 3.9). Decomposed, broken and missing boards on many sections of boardwalks will be encountered. Also at Deep Cove, (km. 1.0) there is a weakened section of boardwalk. Users of the path are urged to use caution while hiking over the disintegrated structures and can expect to encounter mud sections in these areas.
