Do your research carefully; some of these hikes are more challenging than others, and they all offer something different; all are worthwhile. There is a lot of up and down from sea level to the 200m cliffs along the shore. Some of the hiking is along open heaths, and some is through dense forests of fir trees. unless you are taking unnecessary risks, you are never in danger of falling off a cliff. I enjoyed the hikes North of St. John's the most; but they are all exceptional with respect to challenges, scenery, and the lack of people. Some days I didn't see anyone else; and most days I only saw a few ( <10) other people. The hikes which begin and end at St. John's are, of course, easier for more locals to access as short daily hikes. Local B&B's offer a hikers program that includes dropping you off at a trail head and picking you up at the end of the day. Be sure to do the hike ending at Quidi Vidi and enjoy some Ice Berg beer on the dock in this beautiful little harbour.
