In Trinity

A trail system on the Bonavista Peninsula is being created through woodlands and over headlands. The Discovery Trail Tourism Association (tel. 866/420-3255 or 709/466-3845) works to develop and promote hiking trails on the peninsula, and a trail guide is also available.

There's a superb little walk about a 30-minute drive south of Trinity, outside the scenic fishing village of New Bonaventure. (Take Route 230 a few miles west to Lockston, then turn south on Route 233, to get there.) The Kerley's Harbour Trail begins from the end of the parking lot beside St. John's Anglican Church; bear right as you enter New Bonaventure, then drive uphill to the end of the road. This short, 2km (mile-long-plus) trail -- a grassy lane that winds over rolling hills and past a pristine pond -- requires about 35 minutes of walking and ends at the ghost town of Kerley's Harbour, a well-protected cove flanked by rocky hills and open meadows dotted with falling-down (and fallen-down) homes.
