The Copper Mine Falls Trail and the Cape Blow Me Down Trail are both awesome in their own ways.
Cape Blow Me Down Trail: https://youtu.be/WDqkJWdGYV4
At the end of the video you can see the really short hike to see the Copper Mine Trail Falls. Short hike, huge reward!

If you want a real challenge, the Cape Blow Me Down Trail, which is right next to the Copper Mine Falls Trail, will fit the bill. It is 3.8 km up and the same to come down. It took us 2:45 to climb it and 45 minutes to descend. You will never see views like this unless you take on this challenging hike. Definitely wear layers and bring food and snacks.

Great views of the city. Get ready for some stairs.. lots of stairs ;)

It may be scary, but climb the tower! The views are breathtaking! Walking around the little trails at the base of the tower are really enjoyable, too. Can't recommend this enough!

One of the 4 corners of the earth! Its a short hike, only about 30 min with a lot of stairs, but the view is worth it!

This is the site of an abandoned ski hill. The trail is very overgrown. There are makeshift campsites along the trail. A nice place to have a "boil-up" or campfire but nearby Thomas Howe trails are much nicer.

My personal favourite close to home.

Great place to sea puffins and whales.

Very interesting spot where the river flows into and out of an underground cave. There are more trails then what we walked if we had more time to explore.

Wicked trail! So many wonderful viewing spots and Englee is one of the prettiest, nicest and liveliest fishing community I've seen and I've seen a lot of fishing communities.

Really nice trail. It could use some more signage since it was much longer than we originally thought it was going to be and we weren't sure if we were going the right way at times. We hiked to Glass Hole and almost stopped 100m short of the actual Glass Hole because we found what we thought was a Glass Hole. Keep going, you'll know you found it when you find it. It's worth the hike. There are other trails too in the community, so talk to locals or see the map at Conche Lookout Platform which shows all the trails in Conche.

Love this trail! There are several other side trails that can be added on to make this longer but the views are great along the coast and the forested areas are beautiful as well.

Short trail which leads to a significant geological site. If you like rocks this is for you; if not, I would pass on this one.

Lovely trail. The lighthouse is small but the trail is well maintained and brings you to a few very nice lookouts and through fields of wildflowers.

Great hike through forests to the Tableland. Nice views and chances to see wildlife.

Incredible day. It has some steep inclines and declines but nothing crazy. Unbelievable views of the towns, rock faces, beaches, and geography. I see why it’s rated easy for regular hikers but if you’re a newbie I’d consider it a moderate. Don’t let it stop you though it’s an awesome day

Hiked the Trail on Sept 1st 2018. Great hike with amazing views. Lots of stairs, many of them newly installed. Great work done during the shut down. Take your time and enjoy the great views of St. John's Harbor and the Rugged Newfoundland Coast line into the Atlantic Ocean. Some seating areas provided to just sit and soak it in. Take the hike and enjoy it.

I loved the elevation and just the ability to see a lot of the park.

Great hike and views from up top!

The view at the end is worth the trek with the tablelands on one side of the valley and the more familiar hills stretching out opposite. As you travel along the small pond you cross a ton of streams, dipping the trail down and up, otherwise it would be flat until the narrows where you climb up to the base of the tablelands. Depending on the flow you may be able to fill up bottles with cool crisp water flowing down off the edge of the tablelands (I drank it unpurified, I'm fine)

View is fantastic!

Short walk down to a few lookouts and ocean view. Really nice to go down on the rocks and at low tide can go through some tidal pools. Overall more of a walk than hike.

Excellent hike with varied landscapes.
