nice trail with stunning views, but I wouldn‘ t call it easy; I am used to hike in the Swiss Alps, there a trail like this would be labelled moderate or even difficult (as the tourist map of Twillingate does it)

Ok forested trail. Some blackflies.Trail veers onto a beach then back to the woods. A few small brooks and a larger waterfall.

We had a great time on this hike. It goes up and down and offers many views of the ocean.

A lovely moderate level hike. Varying topography from scrambling over exposed granite rock faces, to through a forest tunnel to along the edge of a bay plunging down to the water. Simply lovely.

Nice trail, beautiful look out points

This trail was slightly muddy, but worth the walk in. The falls were beautiful, but we were told by locals that if there hasn't been any rain in the middle of the summer, there might not be any water. The water we saw was crystal clear and blueish-green. You could see clear to the bottom. I wish we had bathing suits and a towel with us!

Great spot to see native wildlife who have been rescued from the wild

One of my favourite spots in the province. One of the only places you can easily see puffins without getting in a boat.

Lovely boardwalk. Great place to relax and watch the birds

Beautiful view from the top and super cool staircase through the cliff caves

Amazing view!

This quick hike leads you to one of the best swimming holes I've ever been to. Absolutely beautiful! However, there was lots of garbage left from people partying at the waterfall.

Super easy and stunning views all around. Depending on the time of year you can also get some local berries as you do the hike.

Enjoyed the hike. Glad I took my.walking stick.

The most popular trail in the park, takes you along the inner reaches of Newman Sound. View shorebirds, tidal mud flats and Pissamare Falls near Headquarters Wharf. From the Visitor Centre to the Outdoor Theatre is approximately 4.7km.

From the Visitor Centre, head across the bridge over Salton’s Brook and meander along the coast of inner Newman Sound. The coastal view will weave in and out of sight. Some areas are open to the coast as a result of pockets of blow downs from recent hurricane winds. Follow the trail down to a small sandy beach and take in the view looking up and down the sound. About halfway the trail breaks out to a road and parking lot – Headquarters Wharf. Once you pick up the trail again there is a small path off to the right that leads to a small waterfall – Pissamare Falls. Back on the trail again, stroll to through the forest to Sandy Point, formed by the deposition of sediment along the coast, here you will see remnants of past human use in this area. Then wind your way into Newman Sound Day Use Area and Campground – the heart of Terra Nova National Park. This trail is easy with some moderate climbs.

It was a beautiful day, but got cold near/at Cape Spear, so bring layers. Hiking shoes or boots are needed since there are a few areas where it's really rocky (vertical climbs for 20+ feet) and muddy (river crossings). The trail is well-marked and well-maintained.

Great easy walk with all the awesome outdoor/ water sounds.

Pass the Pillow lava and granite that is exposed on the cliff face at Sleepy Cove. There are the remains of historic mining operation by Obediah Hodder. Author Dr. Martha Hickman Hild in her book Geology of NewFoundland has a chapter on Dunnage, Iapetus ocean floor and Islands which includes Sleepy Cove. History dating back 500 million years. There is also a great view of Crow Head. The hike and view allow one time to reflect and enjoy nature to its fullest.

Beautiful walk but be careful of the dog poop that’s left around from people not picking up after pets.

Lovely trail network. Super easy. Most trails are flat enough to take stroller or maybe even a wheelchair on. A short sidetrail takes you to a look out over the marsh. Excellent place for bird-watching. Playground and community vegetable garden located at trailhead. The pond is small but is a nice place to throw your kayak in for a quick paddle.

This is a nice easy trail which has an option for an additional side trail to a look-out which overlooks Trinity Bay and the community of Trinity. Well maintained with many educational signs which showcase the areas rich logging history. There are also volley ball courts, picnic areas, playgrounds and a swimming area with change rooms at the trail head.

Great out and back hike that's relatively short but with great views along the way. There's a middle part that has you rock jumping across a decent sized stream but other than that it's fairly easy.
