One of my favourite shorter hikes to do! I like the way the trail went before a few years back as it has been changed since then. I found the other way more strenuous and more of a workout!

Great trail, very scenic. Started at the Main Rd in Blackhead and went 2 km in and then looped out as it was very windy for 4 km in total.

Belle randonnée plutôt facile. Je suis partie du village de Blackhead en direction de Cape Spear et le début était mal indiqué (ECT est beaucoup mieux). Je recommande de suivre les panneaux ECT plutôt que d’essayer de suivre exactement le mapping tel qu’il est ici dans Alltrail.

Great trail for anyone who only has a couple of hours but wants to explore the coastline between Cape Spear back towards Signal Hill. Incredible panoramic views of the rugged coast, including icebergs at the right time of year. A board walk takes you through some of the more damp terrain. Probably better described as a moderate or intermediate trail given the rocky path and the elevation change.

Good trail to do when visiting Cape Spear. Only did part of it because it was pretty muddy today, but I liked the trail. After checking out Cape Spear, it was cool to see some more of the rocky shoreline on this trail.

Not a bad hike. I would say it’s in between easy and intermediate, skill level wise. Some parts are flat, soft ground. And others require navigating rocks and hilly terrain. The trail starts off in a tree covered area but opens up after about 15 minutes of walking, with few places of shade. A few vantage points provide nice photographic opportunities. Bring bug spray and water.

Great views, half in the hot sun and half in the rain and wind. Welcome to nfld!

This segment was part of our "lost day" on the ECT. All I can recollect was that the trail was pretty easy all the way up to Cape Spear. We got there before the elements really began to have their way with us. I only took 3 pictures the whole day due to relentless fog, rain and wind. Anticipating what was to come, we had broken camp and hit the trail early, so the lighthouse was still closed by the time we decided to move on to Petty Harbor. The visibility was too poor to make it worth the wait anyway. No regrets, many wondrous sights were to come. The gift shop was nice!
