If you would like a easy flat walk round a lake next the downtown St John's this could be four you. It not hugely special but if you drive a park up you can easily while away a hour wandering round the pond.

Very nice trail about 5km long. Not difficult, great for an after dinner walk; popular walk for those with kids and animals.

We started at one end of the lake loop, and made our way into Quidi Vidi, visited the local brewery, and bought some Iceberg beer, scenic spot, great for lunch!

A lap of the lake on a nice flat well maintained trail. Plenty of locals seem to use it as their exercise/walking trail & it's obvious why. Plenty to keep you interested & a good walk
