The trail is well groomed and takes about 45- 60 minutes depending on how fast you walk. It is very close to the Village of Qudi Vidi. We saw the rowing teams practicing on the lake. Nice walk , even path.

If you want to a walk where the locals do - check out this trail! We saw many people taking advantage of a sunny day in May on the long weekend to get out and about. We even saw some rowers.

I walk this trail 6 out of 7 days a week. 45-60 mins walk. Love this trail. No hills but you can extend your walk by continuing from Q.V. trail to beyond with the Johnsons trails throughout St. John"s. Trails not groomed in winter.
