Hiking the Rugged East Coast Trail in Newfoundland, Canada

Hiking the Rugged East Coast Trail in Newfoundland, Canada

At the far eastern edge of North America lies a hidden gem. The East Coast Trail has been in development for 24 years, yet some sections make you feel like the first explorer to arrive as you are taken by natures majesty. Getting to hike there felt like a real opportunity to showcase a place and a trail that more people MUST know about. Just spend a few minutes talking with the dedicated crew of people behind the trail and you will know thereโ€™s something special there. And then when you actually step out onto that rocky coastal trail, youโ€™ll be even more surprised.

The East Coast Trail is about 300 kilometres long and follows the rugged east coast from St. Johns down the Avalon Peninsula. There are some truly unique features, such as The Spout, where a geyser-like eruption happens every 15 seconds. There are hundreds of waterfalls cascading into the ocean, arches, and towers. Throw in some fresh seafood (including the raw scallop that served as my birthday cake) and you’ve got yourself one heck of a hiking tripโ€”it’s all remarkable.

Newfoundland was amazing and getting to hike the East Coast Trail and meet the people along the way was a big highlight of my year. I hope you enjoy this episode of Trackin’ Dirt and that it inspires you to potentially make the journey yourself!
