The Cape Blow Me Down Trail, formerly known as the Copper Mine Trail, and also as the Blow-Me-Down Mountain Trail is at the top of my list of favorite trails in Newfoundland with its combination of ocean and mountains. It is located on the West Coast of Newfoundland, about 45 minutes Southwest of Corner Brook and offers a nice mountain climbing experience (you climb up for 2 hrs, and then you climb down), no technical mountain climbing skills are required, and has great views of the beautiful Bay of Islands. Check out the pics below for more information.

One of my favourite hiking trails to do on the Southwest Coast of Newfoundland is the Starlight Trail (named after the former Starlight Motel). The trail gives great views of the Long Range Mountains and Codroy Valley without a lot of effort with the total distance being less than 5 km and maximum elevation is about 350 m.
