Adventures on Newfoundland’s Breathtaking Trails
The authors of The Telegram’s “Along the Trail” column bring you a book of their hiking adventures, containing practical recommendations, informative anecdotes and beautiful accompanying photographs. Follow them as they recount the natural wonders and scenic beauty of 52 of the province’s trails along the Avalon and Bonavista Peninsulas. With information on local attractions, trail highlights and tidbits of history and culture throughout, you will be inspired to pack up a kit bag and hit the trail!
Ponder with them over the origins of place names like Spurwink, Skerwink and St. Shotts. If you’re up for a challenge, try the Masterless Men Path – but don’t forget your compass and map, and keep an eye out for the ghosts of Peter Kerrivan and his crew of convicts who jumped ship in Ferryland Harbour and took refuge in the hills. From the Klondike Trail, peer down on the sea stacks jutting up from the ocean like jagged saw teeth, and watch hundreds of puffins preen themselves on Puffin Rock. There is truly a hike for every person and every season, and you will come to believe, as the authors contend, that “there is no such thing as a bad day on the trail.”
All tales are accompanied by full colour photographs taken by the authors during their many years hiking. The unique layout design is by Vis-à-vis Graphics, the recipient of the Gold and Craft Awards at the 2005 Ice Awards in Halifax.
