The 540 km East Coast Trail is located on the east coast of Canada along the scenic shores of the Avalon Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. 220 km of the Trail have been hardened to a world class hiking standard. This section of Trail stretches from Fort Amherst, in historic St. John's, to Cappahayden, on the beautiful southern shore. Our goal is to have the 540 km fully constructed, signed, with map and route descriptions available by 2016. One of the wonderful aspects of the Trail is that hikers, if they desire, can hike from community to community, stopping in bed & breakfasts, restaurants, and convenience stores along the way. The mission of the East Coast Trail Associationis to develop, maintain and preserve the East Coast Trail while respecting the integrity of our natural environment, the needs of our communities, and delivering a high quality wilderness hiking experience. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the ECTA. Click "Volunteer Opportunities" on the Web site
