The Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland has some great coastal scenery; the major area it is lacking in is summit views. This all changed last night when we visited some friends at Butter Pot provincial park.
Located about 50 km east of St. John's, this provincial park is well used by RV'ers but not so much by tenters. We were invited by friends to hike the trail and I had low expectations; was I ever wrong. It provided a good workout, the trail itself was in great shape, there were sections of bedrock to walk over, and it provided a great summit view of Conception Bay, and the central and Eastern parts of the Avalon. Check out the photos below, I am also including the trailhead coordinates because it is a bit difficult to find.
Trailhead: 47.39438, -53.06306
