East Coast Trail, Newfoundland - Recommendations

I am hoping someone out there can give me a recommendation. I have been looking at the different trails that are part of the East Coast Trail, and really don't know which one to try first. It doesn't matter if it's a difficult or easy trail, but I would like to know which ones are the most popular or have the most dramatic scenery. I will be with someone who is from Australia and want to pick the best one since I will only get to do one section during the visit! Thanks.

Hi , I haven't done all of the east coast trail, but my preferences are the ones around the Witless Bay area...because of the rock formations, the coves, the wildflowers, the birds and the whales... Mickaleens Path,Beaches Path and Tinkers Point Path

Check out the link on the right under Frequently Asked Questions "What about the East Coast trail?" There is a lot of information about the trail and peoples top choices, might be a good place to start.

The ECT is really nice, but the issue is transportation. Unless you have two vehicles you are only able to do half of a trail (out and back). One of the great things about it as it literally leaves right from either side of the city, but that will narrow your options and these trails are definitely not the best ones either. Another option is doing one of the trails like Mickeleens Path in the moring, a kayak tour in Bay Bulls and ask the kayak tour company if they are able to transport you back to your vehicle after the tour. In case you haven't already seen, the details for all the ECT are below.
