“Great view from the top”
Review of Dare Devil Trail

Dare Devil Trail
Reviewed July 8, 2017

The trail is located behind the cemetery just down from Fisherman's Point. The trail is mostly a steep stair case, I think there were 476 Steps. For those Hamiltonians that miss the old wooden Wentworth steps, this will bring back some memories. The Dare Devil factor is that the stairs aren't all that well made or maintained. There were many broken railings and the stairs were a little shaky in places. My 15 year old son loved it!

A moderately challenging, fairly short hike up hill. Definitely worth it for the view. Trails are well kept. You can walk up the steps and then down the back of the hill, rather than going back down the steps. Overall a neat trot!

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 bad and the views from the top are nice. If you climb back down and head the opposite direction you will be brought to a cute little light house and restaurant. This is a great way to spend the afternoon.

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 for a whole day over this gently rolling terrain. There are trails leading everywhere and over every knoll and at the edge of each precipice is another breathtaking view. And although this was in late August we were able to spot, with the aid of binoculars, a lonely iceberg off to the north. We then returned to our transport and sped up to St. Carol's to Joe Patey's Trail for a closer look at the berg. This second trail lead us to a bluff where we were able to see 10 or 12 whales feeding along the shore and alas, we were not much closer to the iceberg. We finished off the afternoon by tracking the Fishing Point Park trail back in St. Anthony's and ended this day at a traditional Newfoundland Scoff at the Royal Canadian Legion. Jiggs dinner was superb
