The East Coast Trail is a 540 kilometres (340 mi) long-distance footpath located in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Major attractions include the Spout, a natural water spout created by wave action along the rocky coast, coastal barachois formations, and a suspension bridge near the abandoned community of La Manche. 265 kilometres (165 mi) of the trail (between Cape St. Francis and Cappahayden) are fully mapped and have proper signage. The remaining 275 kilometres (171 mi) of the trail are accessible to the public, but are unsigned and considered to be under construction.
Starting from the historic city of St. John's, you can head north or south over 265 kilometers of developed trail. The paths of the East Coast Trail take you past towering cliffs and headlands, sea stacks, deep fjords, and a natural wave-driven geyser called the Spout.
