East Coast Trail information

The world-class East Coast Trail stretches 265km from Cape St Francis (north of St John's) south to Cappahayden. It can be explored as day hikes or a thru-hike, stopping in villages along the way, though you will need camping gear. For a sampling, try the 9.3km path between Cape Spear and Maddox Cove (near Petty Harbour).

Topographical maps are available in St John's at Outfitters or Downhome .
