Stayed in St. Anthony on our way up north so had some time to check out these trails. There are a few different look out spots here all with great views of the ocean. The dare devil part brings you up a large staircase to the top of a rocky hill. It's a bit of a climb but not too... More

This trail includes a 500 step cliimb to the top of Fishing Point mountain. A favourite hike for locals and tourist. This is a moderate climb with lots of rest spots on the way.

I got to within a short distance of the top of the staircase when I lost count. Somewhere around 450 but I wasn't going down to recount. This is a unique walk that get one thinking about the tenacity of Newfoundlanders who would build their version of "The Stairway to Heaven". And when you gain the summit, you can walk... More

Park at the cemetery. Easy climb on Boardwalk steps. Great view. Met one woman who does the climb every day, and another who does it twice. It's not that hard, but twice.... No thanks. After the boardwalk you can branch off and do a short walk along the seafront that ends at the lighthouse. Follow that boardwalk along the coast,... More

it's an easy climb up a long staircase built into the side of a hill. but the view is quite astounding when you get to the top. The weather was very changeable on the afternoon that we went - so we could see the clouds coming in and then pulling away again - foggy then sunny then foggy again. worth... More

The trail starts near the cemetery on Fishing Point. Once you get to the top, you can see a panoramic view of the area. I spotted whales (takes some patience, but you can see them if you wait for a bit and keep watching) and some small icebergs on the horizon.

We could see the top of the trail from the road but had to ask at the gift shop for where to start. We parked at the cemetery. The steps did take a while but the views were amazing all the way up so it did not feel as bad as we originally thought it would be. Definitely not for... More

476 stairs up and 476 stairs down - worth every step to see the Amazing Views!!! I have been to many places all beautiful in their own way BUT nothing like this ... Once @ the top I sat and looked into the ocean watching the Whales surface and come up out of the water. Just spectacular, Peace at its... More

You definitely want to do this trail because of the gorgeous views. Just breathtaking! We captured some great shots, and when we got to ground level, we decided to go down a bit lower to look at the rocks. This hike is a must!

This climb and the view up top were a highlight of our visit to the area. A centrepiece of a wonderful park area, the Dare Devil Trail leads to a stunning view of the bay. We were fortunate enough to have a sunny day for our climb, so we saw icebergs, boats, and a distant fog rolling in, all in... More
