Always enjoy this one every summer! Best to go on an overcast day to increase your chances of seeing animals. The walk is all boardwalk.

Didn’t get to do the loop because it’s located inside the gates. We wasted time driving out to the loop. The description should note that the loop can only be done during peak hours.

A nature walk that is all boardwalk with wildlife that have been rescued. Nice day out.

Done this trail too many times to count, always a great experience. Important to note that this is not a hike but rather a walk. It’s a boardwalk path the whole way, with some stairs I believe. Great for kids, pretty touristy in summer. I don’t know why the description doesn’t point out — it’s an animal nature walk. AKA you are walking past lots of non-native animals that you wouldn’t otherwise get to see, this is the closest thing Newfoundland has to a zoo. (And it’s free)
