We didn’t go up there with the intention of hiking this trail, but we did it! We did not hike the whole way, but the portion we saw had amazing views!

We stumbled upon this hike that is not listed on “AllTrails”
This hike takes you over incredibly coloured rocks, stunning shoreline, sandy beach , across plateaus and they the forest! Approx 5-7km depending where you start and finish. We started on Farm road at the beach and did a loop ending back at the same spot... where we also camped. Enjoy!

Turpin's Trail starts (or ends) in Tilting at the end of the road "to the left of the church." The trail is clear, from the Irish Cemetery and Squish Studio in Tilting, over the height of land to Sandy Cove. If you want to turn around (on trail back or road back to Tilting), that's fine. You've had some great views and an hour or less on your feet. But to really experience Turpin's Trail, keep going past Sandy Beach through the woods and down to Lost Cove - a wild place, and a beautiful one. At the seaward end of Lost Cove you go up and over a headland and back down to Sandy Cove. This extra loop takes another hour or so, and is well worth it. Bring water and a snack - the experience of stopping at Wild Cove or the headland or Sandy Cove will be one you'll long remember.

Fogo Island has a wonderful series of hiking trails. The one we enjoyed the most was Turpin's (west). The trek commences from a roadside pulloff just before the village of Tilting and curls behind a beach and past a rocky shore towards the north exposed coast of Fogo. The path was well marked and of easy to moderate difficulty. Our forward progress was much delayed by blueberries, which covered the ground in profusion at the time of our visit.

If you only have time for one hike in this part of Fogo Island, do this one! Park your car near the Lane House Museum in Tilting and head on up. It’s steep in places and the footing is a bit tricky in places, but well worth the views.
It takes under an hour to get to the top of the hill where a U.S. radar station used to be (the foundation remains) and back. We saw whales in the distance, an amazing sunset and there’s a beautiful residence for artists on a cliff. Great pics!

We had a fantastic walk in the late afternoon with the sun shining. There are some benches along the way and the trail is well maintained. Peaked into one of the striking artist in residence studios.

It's a lovely trail with benches along the way and nice picnic spots. Beautiful views of Tilting and ocean views.

My wife and I hiked this trail last September, however I was unable to post here due to the fact I didn't know the address of the trail. So, to the trail itself. We began by wandering through a forest that was cool and inviting. Then on to the pastures and meadows that approach the sea. The trail was very good for walking with a couple of rough sections and many "improved" sections with stairs and boardwalks. As we approached the shore, I realized that this place was unique to our 6 week experience in NFLD. On that particular day the power of the ocean was in full display and the fact that the sun shone over everything gave us a spectacular show. I feel that I could have brought a tent and sleeping bag and spent a couple of days mesmorized by what I was experiencing. If you are on Fogo Island, this is a must do hike.
