East Coast Trail, St. Johns Reviews
Well maintained and marked coastal trails. Large selection of short, medium and long hikes with variable difficulty. A must experience while visiting the Avalon. Soak in the salt water joys and breathtaking views - a priceless experience!
Trails cater to all range of hikers. Breathtaking views, clear markings and well maintained. If you are in Newfouland, even if you are not a hiker - check out the easy trails.
If you're visiting Newfoundland, this is an absolute must. The trails are well maintained and marked, as well the views cannot be beat!
Beautiful trails, for all skill levels, extraordinary views!
I haven't been lucky enough to complete the whole trail, but the sections I have done were amazing!!! Never disappointed and well maintained. After the rain some areas may be a bit slick or mucky but still passable. Can't wait to do more!! I'd give it six stars but they'll only allow five; so five it is!!
