As a local, the Rennie's River Trail is one of my favourite trails through the city. It has beautiful waterfalls, lots of lush greenery, and goes through some very pretty parts of the city!

Last year I went to the duck race here and I can't wait to go back this month. It is a well-organized and fun event open to the public with lots to do and it's lots of fun!

Easy walking on a prepared trail - some steps and steep areas but generally fairly gentle overall. Follows Rennie's River from Long Pond to Quidi Vidi Lake providing access to trails around Long Pond (above) and Quidi Vidi (below). Some nice waterfall areas and some of the best brown trout fishing to be found anywhere.

You will feel like you're a million miles away from a busy metropolitan center. It's a level, well-marked trail that is an easy stroll. Lots of beautiful flora along this river trail. Very zen.

My husband and I recently walked this beautiful trail. Although the trail was icy (wear your cleats) it is the perfect 3 km stroll...winter or summer. Love how this trail takes you along the river and through tree lined paths. Dogs are allowed on leash!

I run or walk on this trail regularly. It has gravel paths and wooden boardwalks, right along the river. Usually see lots of ducks, and very peaceful..

I walk this trail often for exercise or to take photos. It runs from the parkway (Long Pond) to Quidi Vidi Lake. A lovely sanctuary in the middle of the city. Especially beautiful in autumn.
