Breathtaking, you're only one of very few people, can see whales, puffins, lighthouse, cliffs, crashing waves....yet so peaceful.

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.

We always enjoy this trail. It is easy and has spectacular views. Icebergs and whales to view, if the time is right.

My husband and I walked this trail twice this past weekend. I loved the panoramic views of the ocean and the town of Bonavista.

We really enjoyed this walking trail. We allow yourself a few hours to do the trail since there was so much to explore. The trail has gorgeous scenery. Be sure to pack your camera. You'll also see whales and many birds.

Walking this trail is for those who have no difficulty walking. It has some beautiful views but is a rugged trail. It is about 7 km. Bonavista Bay can be seen
