How To Get To Dakota 576 Crash Site

Park at the Bear Cove Boat Launch parking lot and walk down the road toward the ferry about 100m and the trail will be the paved road heading uphill on your right. Near the top of the paved road section, the pavement heads right, but the trail heads LEFT. From there the trail is fairly obvious. The road/gravel road section makes up about half the trail, then the trail turns right where you're looking out over Hardy Bay, then heads into the rugged North Island bush.

Dogs Allowed


Had a blast hiking through the little creeks. Wet foggy day, typical for a fall Hardy day.

This was a great hike! Definitely some thick brush and steep parts, but well worth it in the end. I wouldn't take kids or dogs not used to backcountry hiking.
