The East Coast Trail runs along the east coast of the Avalon Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland. The Trail begins north of St. John's and ends in Cappahayden. There are over 18 trail start / end points where you start your or end your hike. These points are where we drop you off or pick you up once you have completed the hike for the day. We will explain the hike each morning after breakfast with the help of the detailed maps.




You will be greeted by Bill at St. John 's Airport. He will then drive you to the Brown Rabbit Cabins, located on the outskirts of Tors Cove, about an hour from the airport. Once you arrive at the Brown Rabbit, make yourselves comfortable in your cottage or room. Isabella will be in the office to greet you and check you in and give you all the information you need. Now it’s time to relax and enjoy!
