Started in 1994, the East Coast Trail is a long-distance footpath located in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. It is over 300 kilometres (190 mi) of developed trail that is made up of 26 wilderness paths and intersect more than 30 communities. It was named one of the best adventure destinations by National Geographic in 2012 and grows and improves every year.

Maintained by the East Coast Trail Association and located primarily on public lands, the trail traces the east coast of Newfoundland along the Atlantic Ocean. The trail passes through many small coastal towns nested in the bays of the Avalon Peninsula. The trail sections run from Portugal Cove, to Cape St. Francis, through St. John's and continue south as far as Cappahayden.

Major attractions the Spout, a natural water spout created by wave action along the rocky coast, coastal barachois formations, a natural sea arch, and a 50 metres (160 ft) suspension bridge near the abandoned community of La Manche. The trail also passes through Cape Spear, the easternmost point in North America. There are seasonal views of icebergs, birds, marine and plant life and eight historic lighthouses along the path. Most sections of the trail range in hiking time from a few hours to a single day, however there are many designated camping spots along the trail for hikers who wish to use the path.
