This trail should take about 30-45 minutes depending on how long you want to enjoy the view. We did the upper trail loop, tough when heading all the way to the top but the rest of it was fairly easy.

The walk to the top takes about 5-10 minutes, super easy. I would definitely recommend it for the spectacular view of trinity. Great photo opportunity.

The trail head is well marked but the trail is quiet with the best view of Trinity. Very quiet. Do the connecting trails as well. Moderate steepness.

Gunhill trail provides Fantastic views, gets the heart going, and a nice little step away from the summer tourism going on within Trinity (not that it's bad at all but if you like to step away from the crowd...)

The upper gun hill trail is simply amazing! It's quite a lot of walking and walking uphill for the most part but the view is more than worth it. You'll have a 360 degree view from the top of the hill with views of the...More

Did this hike first thing in the morning after waking up at our B&B in Trinity, NL. The trail was around the corner from our B&B and was recommended by our host. It's a medium difficulty hike, as there's a lot of uphill climbs on...More

Hi - It takes about 20 minutes or so. Some sections are a little steep, but otherwise a very pleasant walk. There's parking on the street at the foot of the trail.
