Stunning views
Aug. 2020
This trail has the most beautiful scenic views than any trail I have ever done. The trail itself is well maintained and not extremely difficult, however there are a lot of stairs and uphill. There are many rest stops that you can sit on a bench and rest while your eyes gaze on stunning views. The trail is well marked and there are a couple of different ways that you can go. Towards the end of the trail is a beach which is a bonus.

I would highly recommend anyone visiting this area to do the trail.

Part of out 10 day visit with close friends from Toronto, you have to have a level of fitness to do this but the views are worth it, despite relatively cold and dam conditions for June. Ensure you wear layers and good quality walking boots.

Hiking at its best
Jul. 2019 • Family
This trail was rated moderate. If you are not an avid hiker, this may be a little difficult. However the sights along the trail makes it all worth the effort. If you are ever near there, you must take up the challenge and hike the Skerwink.

Stunningly Beautiful
Jul. 2019
Fantastic trail to see the amazing beauty of the Newfoundland coast and diversity of landscape. Did it with a 12 year old and it was totally fine. Great vistas - with whales traveling the coast. You can pop onto the trail at different spots so make sure you know where you are when you enter - if you don't go from the parking lot!

Most beautiful hike in Newfoundland
Sep. 2019
About 5 KM, moderately rugged trail with stunning vistas along the edge of cliffs that drop off dramatically to the ocean. Really worth the effort for the views.

Great Coastal Views
Sep. 2019
Fantastic views over the coastline toward Trinity and Port Rexton. Although a 5.3 km trail it is not too difficult if you wear good shoes and are able to hike over somewhat uneven ground and climb stairs. Potentially muddy portions of the trail are on wooden walkways. The start and finish of the hike are over flat easy walking trails. Well worth the approximately 2 hours of effort.
