There are numerous Hiking and Walking Trails to follow along the coastlines and throughout all of the communities around the trail. We believe that the best way to explore Newfoundland is to simply walk around the communities and talk to locals. If you prefer a more structured walk, these are some of our suggestions:
For a relaxing stroll, we would suggest a walk around the 500 meter boardwalk that surrounds Carbonear and Rossiters Pond. Feed the ducks and take in the naturalization surrounding the pond.
The D’Iberville Trailis now accessible through several communities on the trail. This is a coastline trail where you can do some berry-picking and whale watching in season.
Within St. John’s, Bannerman, Bowring and Pippy Park all offer easy walking trails, where you can view the historical monuments . Johnson Geo Park in St. John’s offers views of the city, and storyboards that cover the geology and botany of the area. For beautiful scenery and an incredible view of the Narrows, try the North head Trail on Signal Hill in St. John’s. This is a difficult 1.7-km trail on Signal Hill (from Cabot Tower to Lower Battery Road)that descends almost 500 feet over stairs, boardwalk and footpath. Be sure to bring water with you on this trail, as there are no vendors once you have descended the stairs.
