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.
