You will experience the 500 year history of Trinity during the 15 stops we make during the leisurely two and a half hour stroll along Trinity's paths and lanes. Through stories, historic photos, audio recordings of burials, shipwrecks, and disasters, and your imagination you will time travel through the history of Newfoundland in the magical setting called Trinity. It will be a personal educational and entertaining experience.
