Driving directions to Mabou Mines Trailhead:
From the village of Mabou turn west off Route 19, go past the church and over the bridge following the pavement left along the north shore of the harbour inlet for 3km before slowing on an S-curve, make a right turn on the gravel road marked Mabou Mines. Follow this road 6km where the road opens to sweeping ocean view and Finlay Point Harbour. Past the harbour continues 1km, descending the narrowing land to the Mill Brook Bridge. Signs indicate parking near this bridge and there are also several spaces ahead just up the hill next to the trailhead sign.
