We wanted to walk to Quidi Vidi Village and used this path. It was an easy stroll with lots of different views. The path is quite level and well maintained.

We walked out to Quidi Vidi from downtown early in the morning and decided to take a hike before the brewery opened. We hiked up a few of the different trails and the views were stunning! Some of the trails were harder than others - if you go straight up, that one is much more gradual, if you go to the right when you first start, that one is a bit rougher but incredible!

This is a great 4km walk with beautiful views, one of my favourites that's close to downtown. It's very dog friendly, as there are lots of garbage cans / posts with doggy bags attached to them.

I would highly recommend an early walk on this trail during a sunny day. Beautiful view of Quidi Vidi, ocean and rugged terrain.

Appx. 3.8 km hike looping Quidi Vidi lake ... a great way to see the entire community, because they all seemed to be there with their dogs! Nice "elder-park" facility for exercise, ball field, children's playground, and off-shoot hiking trails. Beautiful park, great hike.

Only a few minutes from St John's, this charming seaside cove has lots to offer. Easy walking, with lots to see and do.
There is a nice walking trail just off the parking lot that takes you to the top of the hill overlooking the cove..absolutely scenic..not to be missed!

3.7 km walk around QV Lake, to a dam and a little bridge at one end and boardwalks on the side opposite the road. Joggers, walkers, pets, bird life, artist painting the scenery, not crowded, good exercise, lovely walk.

Tip: there is free parking and a clean bathroom on the road side.
