Great trail! Lovely beach bring a lunch and mug up! The outhouse was very clean with toilet paper. Trail is moderate in some areas. On the way down, take the walking trail not the ATV trail, much safer and a more pleasant walk. Going back up was difficult. However, the trail is well maintained and had anchored rope to help on the difficult sections. It is a jewel that many of us Newfoundlanders have never seen.

Amazing views and lots to experience, well maintained and well marked! One of the nicest views on the Avalon! Perfect for a young family to spend a few hours.

Beautiful, well maintained trail. Few muddy spots but that’s to be expected at times. Would definitely recommend for a nice, easy hike that’s not too long and much less crowded than some of the more popular trails.

Very beautiful and romantic trail to go to. The trail is fairly easy for beginners but you have to be very careful when you walk close to the cliffs

Wonderful hike for a family. Not too hard and the 2 beaches were super fun for my kids. Don’t forget to hike up to the lookout.
