FRIENDS of TAYLOR HEAD PROVINCIAL PARK
About Our Volunteer Interpretative Program and Other Activities
The Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park organization offer a program of interpreted and guided outings and other events that we hope will enhance the experience of park users. This initiative originates from our strong attachment to Taylor Head Provincial Park and our passion for the natural world.
The guides and interpreters for all activities are volunteers. We have limited resources in terms of the scope and level of assistance that we are able to offer to participants who cannot safely participate without special attention or supervision. In particular, if you have mobility, endurance, or cognitive limitations we ask that you read the program details very carefully to ensure that the activity you choose is right for you. We have included some events in the program that are less demanding and hopefully within the capabilities of a broad range of people with mobility or other issues that impose limits to their enjoyment of our wonderful park.
NO FEES! All of the activities are FREE!
If you want to support the Friends of Taylor Head organization and the work we do, consider a membership. Family and Individual membership fees: $ 20.00/$10:00 per year.
Note the Park Extension Activities component of the program. Through a partnership agreement between The Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park and NS Department of Natural Resources, the Park gate is open beyond the normal October 13 closing date until December 07. The friends are responsible for garbage collection and toilet maintenance during this period.
About the Trails:
The trails in close proximity to the parking lots and the beach are relatively smooth with some surfacing. Some of these trails are boardwalks and others have relatively smooth gravel surface. Otherwise, most hiking trails are rough and can be challenging. Typically, on these trails you will have to step over protruding rocks and tree roots, walk up and down steep steps of rock, and tread through some muddy wet patches. Conditions are often very slippery. Many people find that a walking stick is very helpful on the rough, slippery trails.
You need sturdy footwear such as walking shoes, hiking sneakers, or hiking boots. Street shoes or sandal-type footwear with open toes and heels are not suitable for these rough hiking trails.
If you have questions about the conditions of the trails, just give us a call. We have graded our hiking trails as
EASY or MODERATE for hikes under 3 kilometers, and DIFFICULT for hikes over 3 kilometers, such as the Headland Trail.
Most outings exceed three hours, so do not forget to bring drinking water and a snack and appropriate outdoor clothing.
PARK EXTENSTION ACTIVITIES : October 13 – December 07
Through a partnership agreement between The Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park and NS Department of Natural Resources, the Park gate is open beyond the normal October 13 closing date until December 07. The friends are responsible for garbage collection and toilet maintenance during this period.

The ingredients for each soap batch we make are chosen for the individual properties that they each will bring to the new bar of soap. Where possible we use local products such as dandelions, maple syrup, bladderwrack and plantago. Other ingredients come from as far away as Africa, Australia and the Dead Sea located between Jordan and Israel. The ingredients in each bar of soap are located on the packaging or on our website at www.shalebrooksoap.com.
Once the desired formula is calculated the soap is produced in one of three ways: hot process, cold process or cold process stove process. The finished soap is then poured into molds and allowed to harden. After coming out of the loaf mold, each bar is hand cut, air dried, cured and hand packaged.
Products: luxury bars, regular bars and specialty bars that are designed for problem skin, facial use and shampoos, and lip balms.
Other Ingredients: beeswax, lanolin, avocado butter, avocado iol, Cocoa butter, mango butter, Castor oil, Rose Hip Oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E oil, Spearmint, Peppermint, Rosemary, Calendula and Chamomile.
