Really liked this trail. Lower loop and more rigorous upper loop both offer spectacular views. Well kept stairs assist over steeper slope.

Quick a little uphill hike but worth it! The view of the entire cute town is amazing! Beautiful scenery and informative signage.

Do not underestimate the short walk for beginner which is just only an hr but the climb is quiet some work…. Once you reach view point, it is totally worth the climb. You will variations of berries along the way but do not take advantage of it unless you know what you are tasting. The vantage view of Trinity village is breath taking! Pack a picnic and enjoy.

This hike made me fall in love with Trinity. You hike up the hill and have a great view over the bay, the village and the open sea further out. Beautiful sight, especially when the sun colors everything in its yellow color. When visiting the Bonavista peninsula, I recommend staying a night or two in Trinity, doing a day trip to Bonavista, but enjoying the evenings in Trinity.

An uphill hike but view of the whole town of Trinity is amazing. You can go higher up if wants more view of the ocean and area. Trail starts right past the bank. Only short hike to get the view. We only hiked up to the platform and no need to go further up. Enjoyed a whole half hour just relaxing on the platform!

Very short trail at the beginning of the Skerwink Trail, easy to do, great views. Would recommend if you just want a quick pretty walk to complete.

There are two options on this trail - a hard branch and an easy branch, Both have great views and great place to sit and eat a lunch or snack as you look at Trinity. Then go visit the town or take a drive to the lighthouse across the water!!

Cute short trail for anyone active who wants to spend a little time outside. Great views of Trinity. We took a walk through town after our hike for an ice cream. Picked a few wild berries just off the path. Old cemetery at the beginning was also interesting. I would rate this trail as easy.

We walked this trail before supper, an relatively easy walk although steep at the top. Views over trinity and surrounding area are breathtaking and gives you a much better perspective on where the village lies in relation to the surrounding coves

We climbed the Gun Hill trail with our 12-year-old grandson. It was spectacular! Easy trail (we are both in our late 60's) that took about 25 minutes, including many stops for photos. Our grandson loved it. The view from the top was awesome. Well worth the climb.
