- Hiking the Bottle Cove Trails near Corner Brook
- This area has some of the finest coastal scenery in the province. A series of short well-marked and sign-posted trails leave from the parking lot located overlooking Bottle Cove. Bottle Cove is located near the end Highway 450 which winds along the south shore of the Bay of Islands. Allow about 50 minutes of driving from Corner Brook. And if you are there at sunset be sure to hike to "sunset rock" to take in the view. Also if you are there on a sunny warm day you can dip into the cool water of Bottle Cove from a long sandy beach.
- Hiking to Cedar Cove near Corner Brook
- The Cedar Cove trail is a short one (1.8 km) that will appeal to a wide range of hikers. It is short and fairly level and ends at Cedar Cove (also known as Wild and Caplin Cove). The large raised terrace makes for fine lunch spot with views looking out into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. To reach the trailhead drive to Little Port (end of the South Shore Highway) and look for a large sign at the end of the parking lot.
- Hiking the Man in the Mountain Trail, Corner Brook
This is probably the most popular of the trails that have been developed by the International Appalachian Trail in Newfoundland (IATNL). Its highlights include fabulous views of the Humber River and Humber Canyon. It is just over 3.5 km to the famous lookout and just under 9 km to Wild Cove Pond. You can do this trail as a traverse (and end at Wild Cove Pond) or hike to the lookout and back. The starting place is at parking lot near Ballam Bridge: turn right after the bridge and follow the road until you see the large IATNL sign.
- Copper Mine Cape, York Harbour
- This trail ascends 650m to the top of Blow Me Down mountain which is uniquely positioned to offer superb views of much of the Bay of Islands. This 7.5km long trail is perhaps one of the finest on the island given the vistas it offers of headlands, bays, islands and mountains. The trail winds through the woods before gradually climbing above treeline. Expect strong winds in this area in all seasons.
