Good trail, although very hard. We started in freshwater bay and hiked to Fort Amherst. Very hard uphill for the first part of the trail. Would not recommend for beginners. Beautiful views when you get to the top!!

Super hard trail, there’s a huge hill that goes straight down for about 2km that’s all rock climbing. Definitely not one to bring dogs on!

Another gorgeous hike! Very little shade once you get out of the woods. It is a steep descent up over the rocks but a beautiful view. Parking lot was jammed so we had to park up by the turn off to go towards cape spear (where the road is closed).

Great day hike. Lots of places to jump in a pond for a dip. Secret beach with a waterfall. Barachois with some ship wreckage.

We hiked a shorter section of this trail in and out, but the views along the trail are absolutely stunning. Trail was very easy to follow with a number of lookouts!

This was a spectacular way to drink in the stunning scenery of the area -- I was astonished by how much of the trail really is right on the coast, hugging the spectacular cliffs. I continued past Blackhead all the way to Cape Spear (another 5km or so), and then was fairly easily able to hitch a ride back to St. John's with one of the many other tourists heading back to the city. A great day trip and doable without a car! (I took a cab to the Fort Amherst trailhead.)

Our first section on the East Coast Trail began with a steep, quarter mile ascent! The first part of the trail travels through forests and exposed areas with some ocean view. It then takes a long descent down to the shoreline of Freshwater Bay. After crossing it, the remainder of the section ascends then follows the cliff edges all the way down to Blackhead. We camped there for our first night. No stores or accommodations, although I recall a small craft shop just as we were leaving town, continuing on to Cape Spear. This section is in excellent shape and did not disappoint. Challenging enough, but nothing compared to what laid ahead. Like so many spots along the ECT: Heaven on the eyes, Hell on the legs!

Lovely trail and ell taken care of. Goes inland a little more than I would like.
