From the Ferry between Grand Bay-Westfield and Hardings Point on the Kingston Peninsula continue on Hardings Point Landing Road. After 1.5 km turn right onto route 845. After 12 km you will come to a stop sign at a junction. Turn right onto Summerville Road. After 900 meters you will see the sign for the Sea Dog Cove Nature Preserve on your left. The trail to the lookout starts just beside the sign. A trail directly across the road leads down to the shore at Sea Dog Cove. Park along the road beside the trails.


The trail is grassy and mowed. It is wide and easy to follow. The trail to Sea Dog Cove descends past and old shed and picnic table. The mowed trail goes through an old field with tall grass and bushes. At the end of the mowed trail you have to go through a few feet of deep grass and bushes to get to the shore. The shore is rocky and marshy with lots of seaweed. There are views in every direction of the shoreline of Sea Dog Cove and across to Kennebicasis Island.

The trail to the lookout starts by following an old road. The trail turns sharply to the left and crosses a muddy area that is covered by a small boardwalk. The trail continues until it meets a trail coming from someone's back lawn. The trail then turns right and goes through the mixed forest until it reaches the lookout that looks across at Sandy Point in Saint John.
