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

We did this hike earlier today, it is a great hike, wilth an awesome waterfall at the end. The hike itself is easy with only slight elevation changes along the route. The surface is a mix of boardwalk (lots thru swampy areas) and dirt or crushed rock. The hike takes you thru many different vegetation areas and a detour thru the moose (free) enclosure easily demonstrates the impact that moose have on the local vegetation. The other detour to little pond is worthwhile, but is a little more challenging with more elevation changes... a great hike, the falls are truly spectacular.

excellent trail with the majority being flat land along the coastline

Great quick walk along the water

Easy hike with beautiful falls at the end. Can also be a great place to snowwshoe with a remote cabin available to rent in the winter months

Was pleasantly surprised with this trail. Always ask the locals what their favourite hikes are. Would hike this again in a heartbeat!

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.

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.

I hiked this trail in May and found that the section that runs parallel to the highway was still very icy since it goes through dense woods and the snow had been packed into ice from people walking over it. I ended up bushwacking towards the highway and walking back to my car along the road. The look out is of beautiful Alexander Bay and worth the effort required to climb the stairs to the top.
