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

A very nice hiking trail, so serene with the river running through and it travels quite a long distance into the forest as well.

This is the perfect connector to get from the Pippypark Campground to downtown St John's on foot. Unfortunately bikes are not allowed on the trail. It's a little over 3 km - but all flat and along the little river, far away from cars. There...More
