Skerwink Trail

Skerwink Trail Review

About 9,000 people a year come to hike this historic footpath, a cliff walk with panoramic vistas of Trinity and the ocean. On the trail you'll see sandy beaches, sea stacks (giant protruding rocks that have slowly eroded over time), seabirds and, in season, whales, icebergs, and bald eagles. The 5.3-km (3¼-mile) walk, which begins across the harbor in Port Rexton–Trinity East, is not for the faint of heart—it takes about two hours and can be steep in places. There are benches along the way, though. Trail maps are available at the visitor center in Southern Bay.
