About
A 5.5 km hike. It is rated as being easy-moderate in difficult. The trail is a loop that displays the beautiful coastal scenery, views of the surrounding communities and local wildlife. The last portion of the Trail takes you through the fishing village of Champney’s West and along back trail for more spectacular coastal scenery. By choosing the alternate route off Trail and through the community you will increase the difficulty. The Trail goes past the fishing stages and wharf of Champney's West. These images have been included in provincial commercials and advertisements. You may even find an opportunity to chat to a local resident.

This is a moderately easy hike that takes you through Champney's West, a lovely little outport community, and along the cliffs of Trinity Bay.

Easier than the Skerwink trail which is close by. But very scenic and part of the trail passes through the quaint little village of Champneys West where you can visit the Aquarium. East to find and access. Allow 2 to 3 hours to complete and a little more if you want to climb to the lookout on Fox Island.

Great Hike with Lovely Views
Aug. 2019
This is a good moderate hike. It's about 3 miles and has lots of great vistas. There's a bit of up and down but it's certainly attainable by someone in very average shape and the exertion is well rewarded by the interesting fauna and scenery. Have a beer at Port Rextron brew after to reward yourself.

Amazing hike and fantastic views
Aug. 2019 • Friends
We went on this hike hoping to stretch our legs a bit. We got just that! This is a 5.3 km fairly easy hike through the woods and around the bay. If you want to make it a little more challenging and a little longer, hike to the top of a hill that has a Canadian flag at the top. This is toward the middle to end of the hike. There are ropes to help you up and down the rock. After your hike, head straight to Port Rexton Brewing. Great beer, nice food truck (grilled cheese sandwiches), nice people.

Just as good as Skerwink Trail

I am not sure why the Skerwink trail gets so much publicity when this trail just up the road is just as accessible and scenic. We enjoyed this trail very much !

Too Long!
May 2019 • Friends
Six of us really enjoyed the seaside walk, which meandered from lovely lowlands to stunning cliffs. But the signage near the end -- or what we assumed was near! -- kinda petered out and led us through the paved roads of the village. A shortcut along the shore would have been appreciated. Well worth the walk.
