Perfect hike/ walk for a power walk. Wish there were BR’s half way... not allowed to use BR at restaurant so needless to say did not go there for lunch...

Beautiful views

You have beautiful views no matter what the weather. Lots to do no matter what you are looking for. Trails for the walkers and museums for those who like that. Always something to look at. Worth the trip.

For everyone

A very easy, flat walk along the coast from Bonavista to the lighthouse. Lovely scenery, albeit unspectacular. Unfortunately the trail is alongside the road a lot of the time, so one sees little more than one would from a car, and there is no feeling of 'otherworldliness'.

A Pleasant Walk on a Nice Day
Aug. 2018 • Solo
A walking trail along a magnificent shoreline. For an average walker, the trail can be walked in 45 minutes one way or one and a half hours return trip, beginning at the parking area and ending at the John Cabot statue. However, this trail can be accessed at many points along the way, allowing the hiker to plan a custom walk to suit a certain length of time and/or choice of scenery. One important tip: pick a day when there isn't much wind. The winds can be very severe and cold at times in this area, and hiking the trail on such a day would not be a pleasant experience. The shoreline here is quite rugged with much to see including various sea birds, whales in summer, small islands offshore, and some boats of various sizes.

This area could easily be one tod the most photogenic areas in Newfoundland let alone Bonavista on the way to the cape. Either as a drive or a hike you can't be disappointed

A nice walk along the coastline. Great place to watch the sunset and maybe a passing iceberg. I would recommend packing hiking boots. Anywhere in Bonavista that you hike is rocky and a good supportive shoe is a must.

A beautiful walk along a rugged coastline
Sep. 2017 • Friends
This is a 3-kilometre trail that follows the coastline up to the lighthouse at Cape Bonavista. The scenery is beautiful with plenty of rocky shores, crashing waves and ocean views. The trail is rated "Easy" which is accurate. The pathway is well marked and well maintained and there is little to no incline. It's in a very open area that stays mostly within view of the road going out to the Cape.

Depending on the time of year, it's likely to be a good opportunity to view icebergs or whales. Up by the lighthouse, there's a good chance to see puffins - again, depending on the time of year.

Good shoes, walking sticks, some water and a snack. This trail is an adventure that captures your heart and your mind. You'll want to revisit this place of beauty again and again

Great seashore access..long from beginning

We were happy to see this trailhead near our cabins. The townward half is well-maintained but uses the road for sections. The lighthouse half is much wilder. I'd recommend just doing that half. Great views, but everywhere seems to have the same benefit.
