I walk this trail often for exercise or to take photos. It runs from the parkway (Long Pond) to Quidi Vidi Lake. A lovely sanctuary in the middle of the city. Especially beautiful in autumn.

I have had the pleasure of walking the Rennie's River Trail on many occasions. Groomed trails within a gorgeous setting. The hike is good for almost anyone as it is not difficult. A great way to explore the city and the outdoors. Highly recommend it.

Excellent trail. Quiet and tree lined. Do the walk before dark if you can because it is t lit all the way through. It is a nice walk.

You can walk right through the old part of the city from one side to the other through these park trails.

Like something you would see on a film. The locals take care of the trail and it seems little free. I saw everything from trout to ducks at a very comfortable walk

This trail runs through the city with beautiful trees and shrubbery and peeking into the gorgeous backyard gardens of the city.

easily one of my favorite trails in town. Wish it was cleaned of ice a bit to make this more accessible to everyone during the winter .

The trail is roughly 5k round trip from Quidi Vidi lake. That will get you not quite to the end of the trail, there is a bit more if you cross over a busy road, but it didn't look like it was worth the extra distance. So... More
