Trail Connections

East Coast Trail

Since 1994, the East Coast Trail Association has developed 300km of world-class coastal wilderness hiking trail. The East Coast Trail has become internationally known as one of the best long distance coastal hiking trails anywhere and attracts hikers from all over the world. They can expect to enjoy an exciting variety of coastal scenery and such cultural experiences as historic lighthouses and old outports, some of which are now abandoned.  In season, whales, seabirds and icebergs may be viewed. Fall brings an abundance of berries, including blueberries and partridge berries, to be savored while you are hiking.
