we started this one but didn't do the whole thing. The beginning of the trail is all down over rocks and boardwalks in spots. then you reach a beach where there is a choice to go 1 of 2 ways. we went left but only went less then half way. it was wet in places but that never really bothers me. I will finish this trail someday. what I did see was gorgeous. we even seen a whale.

Good amount of elevation with some muddy spots. Made it to Freshwater Bay and there's a pond to swim in. Mostly shaded and great views! Took my dogs and they loved it.

Warning Barachois water crossing on July 18th required taking off your boots and socks and rolling up pants above the knees (picture posted in photos). The past week’s heavy rainfall has elevated water levels above the stepping stones across the water opening in the Barachois. Otherwise our hike from Cape Spear to Fort Amherst was a good workout and no troublesome water build up elsewhere on the trail.

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).

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.
