“A real gem!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

This was our first visit to Newfoundland and Labrador. My husband and I had taken a few trails already into our trip.
By far, this trail was the best one for us. We enjoyed the breathtaking and spectacular views which were non-stop, as we came to a different spot in the trail. It was a bit of a challenge in some parts, but worth the effort.
We loved this trail ... What a gem!

“fabulous”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

a unique trail, all beauty and thrill,well maintained and not too crowded. a bit steep but the well built wooden steps and railings when necessary provide confidence and safety. the wiew is breath taking and the distance is not too long. it takes 2 - 3 hours in an easy pace with a lot of camera work... fantastic!!!

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Easy to moderate hike, often on boardwalks. Many lookouts along the trail to see the stunning cliffs. In the best viewing sites benches are available. Plan plenty of time as you will stop often to view the scenery.

“Stunning views”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Probably one of the last places on earth that you can walk along a cliff without a fence. Amazing views of the ocean!

“The best walking trail in the world!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Very well kept trail, easy walk, with absolutely stunning views of mountains, ocean, and beaches.
Take the cliff walk around and as you come back into the bay, take the stairs to the lookout. That way, you get the full effect of this excellent trail and the spectacular views!
