There is no easier walk on the entire eastern seaboard with this rewarding of a view. Lots of steps, but still not tough to do- sneakers or hiking sneakers is plenty, and be soooooo careful on the edge of the cliffs, goodness gracious. Very, very photogenic. Nearby hostel.

An amazing place . We had a great weather. I believe that when wet it will make it so much more difficult and my wife would not had been able to complete the trail.

We did the trail and took the section that goes along by the water. Although you can take an inland route, the water route has the best views. There is a map of the trail as you start out, which makes it easy to navigate. There are many areas where boards, covered with wire mesh, are provided so the going... More

Beautiful, stunning trail. The trail was clearly marked and clean. We hiked along the edge of cliffs most of the time so the view was stupendous.

This hike was a beautiful hike with great viewing sites. We had a panoramic view of the ocean most of the time and even got to see a moose. Highly recommended.

This is a very fun hike, different spots gave very different views! The rocky coastline and rock formations were well worth the time spent on the hike. It goes all around a peninsula near Trinity, NL. I also saw a harbor seal along the way in one of the coves. Don't be in a hurry to do this hike. Take... More

We hiked the entire 5.3K coastal trail and found it to be incredibly well maintained - they constructed wood walkways covered with steel mesh to prevent slipping to navigate over the boggy sections. Sneakers or rubber soled walking shoes are all that is needed. There are benches strategically located at stunning vistas along the trail.

A great walk. Bring your binoculars and camera. Follow the advice, and do the loop clockwise for the best views.
