If you want to a walk where the locals do - check out this trail! We saw many people taking advantage of a sunny day in May on the long weekend to get out and about. We even saw some rowers.

Beautiful views while we took a slow stroll around the lake. Even more eventful when the boats are rowing

I walk this trail 6 out of 7 days a week. 45-60 mins walk. Love this trail. No hills but you can extend your walk by continuing from Q.V. trail to beyond with the Johnsons trails throughout St. John"s. Trails not groomed in winter.

Easy walk with lots of area to stop and rest if required. Beautiful view all around the lake. If you have time, walk in Quidi Vidi and enjoy the view.

If you would like a easy flat walk round a lake next the downtown St John's this could be four you. It not hugely special but if you drive a park up you can easily while away a hour wandering round the pond.
