Distance: 11 miles. Duration: 3-5 hours. Elevation gain: 500 ft. Amazing 360 view of the legendary Quidi Vidi Village and the city of St. Johns's. Slippery conditions, but well worth it. Wildlife (Bald Eagles, Hawks, Ruffled Grouse).

The Path is a small part of the 265 km East Coast Trail and is readily accessible from either Quidi Vidi Village or the Marine Science Lab in Logy Bay. Enjoy the amazing view of the coast from atop Sugarloaf Head and gorgeous vistas of the city all the way to Cape Spear from the Bawdens Highlands end of this wonderful Trail.

P.S. Make reservations at Mallard Cottage for an outstanding brunch, and grab a nice cold beer and tour the Quidi Vidi Brewery
