Biscan Cove Path
From Pouch Cove to the northern point of the Avalon peninsula, the cape Saint Francis. This part of the Trails is still unofficial. Then still 5 km through the coastal rain forest to Cripple Cove. Back to Pouch Cove. (Approx. 16 km, 7.5 h)

Stiles Cove Path
From Flatrock to Pouch Cove. This part is developed already quite quite well. Only the bridge across the creek at the the Shoe Cove exists up to now only of the foundations and wil be finished later in December. (Approx. 15 km, 8 h)

Sugarloaf Path
From the Ocean Sciences Centre nerby Logy Bay to Saint John┬┤s. In bright sunshine we hike along the cliff line to Quidi Vidi and further to our accommodation in the harbour of Saint John┬┤s. (Approx. 11 km, 7 h)

Deadmans Bay Path
In Atlantic weather we start at the old harbour fortress Fort Amherst to Blackhead. For the moment it goes steeply uphill and it becomes foggy. Then, however, behind the Small Point the sun comes out. (Approx. 11 km, 6 h)

Tattoo on Signal Hill and Blackhead Path
It raining again. Thus we walk to the signal Hill and watch the Tattoo at 10:00 o┤clock. Early in the afternoon we hike the short stage from Blackhead to the most eastern point of America, the cape Spear. (Approx. 3.7 km, 1.5 h)

Beaches Path
From Witless Bay to Tors Cove. The way mostly goes through woodlands close to the coast. Over and over again one must run around narrow bays and, therefore, down to the Atlantic. (Approx. 12 km)

Whale Watching and Mickeleens Path
In Bay Bulls we make a Whalewatching tour. Past ┬┤Gull Island┬┤ it goes to the humpback whales. However, except the backs and flukes one gets nothing to see. Then we hike to Wittles Bay. (Approx. 7.3 km)

La Manche Village Path
From Tors Cove to Lamanche. Past Doctors Cove we come to the new suspension bridge with the given up community La Manche Village where the path ends. (Approx. 6.4 km, 3 h)

Caplin Bay Path
Together with our Canadian friends we hike to the "Colony of Avalon" near by Ferryland. There one of the oldest long-lasting European settlements in North America is digged out. (Approx. 5.2 km)

Bear Cove Point Path
From Fermeuse to Renews. During the whole last night it has rained it in streams. Only in a threesome we make the absolute water tour. It is absolutely useless to wring out the socks. Only about midday it becomes better. (Approx. 11.6 km, 5 h)

Island Meadow Path
From Cappahayden to Renews. The last day on the East Coast Trail. To Bear Cove on meadows along the coast, than nevertheless, partly steeply on slippery and slushy trail up to the Renews Head. (Approx. 10. 1 km, 5 h)

Cape St. Mary┬┤s Ecological Reserve
Cape St. Mary┬┤s Ecological Reserve is an ecological reserve located on the southwestern Avalon Peninsula. It is home to one of Newfoundland┤s largest seabird colonies.

Skerwink Trail
The Skerwink Trail immediately begins at the edge of Trinity East. This circular track is only 5.3 km long, however, offers so many observation points that we are on the move, nevertheless, nearly 5 hours.

Cape Shore Trai
The Cape Bonavista is the northern end of the Bonavista peninsula. The cape Shore Trail goes from Bonavista along the coast of the Bonavista Bay to the lighthouse at the cape. There we observe the humpback whales in the bay.

Murphy┬┤s Cove & Lodge┬┤s Pond Trail
Port Union was once the principal place of the fish processing. From there we hike the 7.7 km long loop along the coast of the harbour protecting hook.

Maberly Trail
In marvellous weather we hike from Little Catalina along the edge of the cliffs through low cripple┬┤s growth. At the return point several humpback whales give us a farewell performance with a multiple parade.
