Europa Point Overlook

Europa Point Overlook

The Europa Point Trail is a spur trail off of the Lameshur Bay Trail. It was an old national Park Trail that was abandoned by the park and reopened by local hikers. Assuming that you’re starting out at Lameshur Beach, the intersection of the two trails can be found  just before the Lameshur Bay Trail begins it’s long upward climb.

The Europa Point Spur follows the ridge of the Europa Point, leading through some dry forest into a  rugged cactus scrub environment near the top of the headland. The trail ends at an overlook with some really cool views.
