The trail was all right, if one were just looking for exercize. Quidi Vidi, overall, was a bit of a disappointment; maybe we just did not find the quaint spots, but the area seemed to look a bit depressed, really. To be fair, though, we...More

Quidi Vidi Lake trail is appropriate for families, singles, couples, elderly. No bikes are allowed so it is safe for walkers so any age. The scenery is always good, no matter the season. 3.5km all the way around but there is easy access to Quid...More

Even with a light drizzle, it was relaxing walking around the lake. And we were not the only ones braving the inclement weather.

Good place to exercise for an evening walk. Lots of lake action with kayaks! Close to soccer fields and lots of birds for bird watching.

I have walked this lakeside trail many times. Beautiful scenery. Friendly faces. Be sure to visit during the Royal St. John's Regatta. The oldest continuous sporting event in North America.

Ideally located with beautiful scenery (minus the sight of the penitentiary.) Level walking surface, with an adult play ground located adjacent to it - which is perfect for the outdoor athletic type. Wonderful experience to walk around the lake in the summer, with the nice...More

This is a short (about 3km) circular trail around Quidi Vidi lake. It's a pleasant, easy walk, but you'll see very few ocean or scenic views from here. There are picnic tables, a dog park, and a playground for families. There is a large grocery...More
