This is a well maintained, very attractive trail. It was somewhat of a challenge for a 60-something with bad knees, but well worth the effort. The boardwalks through low areas and steps up some of the steeper hills were very helpful. It is a fairly long trail with many ups and downs and you walk some distance to get to... More

The first and last km of the trail are unimpressive, though the trail does go through a big patch of wild blueberries, which is great. The middle section is definitely medium difficulty, however the trail is extremely well tended, and very safe, other than the potential for falling off cliffs all the time (Safe as in no twisted ankles or...

The views along the way are breathtaking and are around every corner. Theres so many places to stop along the way. Give yourselves lots of time because... More

As a non-hiker, this trail was easy for this 60 year old. It takes about 2 hours, less if you don't stop for picture taking, and simply enjoying the moment. Hills, meadows, beaches, cliffs, this trail has it all. And there is no charge, although I strongly suggest a donation. The donation box is at the beginning/end of trail. I... More

A moderate hike for a seasoned hiker affording a great perspective of the area and the inlets. A non hiker might find it inspiring because of the beautiful views along the way.

Being from Newfoundland I was disappointed to find out this trail existed and me not have done it already .. There's no excuse acceptable ☺️ I absolutely loved this hike .. Nature lovers dream .. So on this trip back home I was ready to cross it off the bucket list I was fortunate to be with a person who... More

The hike is not difficult, but offers breathtaking scenery along the coast overlooking Port Rexton and Trinity. This is not for mountain bikes.

Very nice view of the water and Trinity. Not difficult walk and the length was only 5.4 KM. Really enjoyed it.
