Great trail for sure and one of the more difficult ones in the area sure. Alot of woodland hiking rather then coastline but when you reached coastline areas they certainly didnt disappoint that's for sure ! Lots of elevation changes during this hike so be prepared for a good workout. roughly 7km one way.

Great trail to get your heart rate going. Signage could be a little better but overall a great hike. We parked at the ball park in Pouch Cove walked up the road about 200m to access the trail. We’ll be back again.

Beautiful! I wasn't able to go further! You want to make sure to have your snowshoes! Enjoy and stay safe!

Gorgeous views but had minimal signage and we lost the path several times. Other than that I thought it was gorgeous and seeing Cape St. Francis as we got to the end was very cool. I highly recommend anyone hiking the trail to explore the town afterward and go see the lighthouse, you won’t regret standing on the peak of the Avalon :)

The only reason I'd suggest this hike is if you are trying to complete the ECT.

It's an okay hike. Far better choices on the east coast trail.
