The East Coast Trail is a beautiful hiking trail in Newfoundland, it consists of more than twenty linked but separate paths that can easily be enjoyed on their own. On this blog I’ve created simple maps for the paths I hike most often, they show you where the trails are and what to expect once you get there.
Every map shows:
- where the trailheads and designated parking areas are
- the hiking trail in red and access trails in blue
- yellow markers for highlights and objects along the way
These maps are Google Maps, you can expand them by clicking the ‘View Larger Map’ link underneath. The top right corner of each map offers the option to switch to satellite view, terrain view, and if you have the Google Earth plugin installed you can even see it in 3D. Right click on any trailhead or parking area to get directions to and from there.
I’ve created these unofficial maps for reference only.

Hazards of the trail
No hiking website is complete without an ominous warning, here is mine:
Be careful on the trail. In places it runs atop tall cliffs towering over the ocean, the view is amazing but getting too close to the edge can cost you dearly, at any time a gust of wind can knock you off balance or even blow you clear off the trail.
Use common sense, watch your step, tell someone where you’re going and when you plan to be back.
