We found a hiking spot of just .5 km through the forest and coming out at Torbay point (Take Dorans Lane before Middle Cove). It was wonderful smelling the green scent of the evergreen forest as one hiked along the wooden pathway which was made up of two 2'x8 boards sitting on logs. They even laid down chicken wire on the boards so one wouldn't slip as there are no railings. Once you get out of the forest there is a pathway that goes down to the actual point.

1.7 km trail takes approximately 90 mins & descends almost 500 ft - Hikers connect with the trail from Signal Hill’s top - It is Signal Hill’s most popular and most difficult hiking trail

This is a great trail in any weather, but the views are amazing when there is good visibility. It is a bit of a hike, and requires a moderate level of physical fitness. It's popular among tourists and locals alike, that's how I knew it would be a good idea to climb. Leave yourself a bit of extra time if you know you'll want to take photos! I hope to walk this trail again next time I'm in St. John's.

Following several days of rain and colder temperatures, this morning was just the perfect morning to take a stroll around the Pond. The trail, expect for the tiny gradual up near the Dam, is flat and well groomed, either walking stone or wood. Lots of folks were taking advantage of the beautiful fall morning to 'wake up the ducks' as they walked or power walked the path. The trail which wraps the 'the Pond' as local know it, is but a part of a much large trail system to be found in the City.
