We’ve had a really cold start to summer. Some are blaming it on the capelin being late rolling, some are just chaulking it up to living in this unpredictable place. Regardless of the reason for the cold, when we finally do get a good day, you have to take full advantage and get outside.
One day last week we arrived home from work and it was warm and sunny (well, it wasn’t completely freezing). So we headed to Quidi Vidi Gut and started up the path for the Sugarloaf hike. This hike takes you from Quidi Vidi all the way to Logy Bay, but we only did the first part of the hike, up to the lookout at the top of the stairs.
At the beginning of the hike, it is not easy to determine the exact path to take. There are a few options it seems, but you can’t really get lost. By the time you get higher up the hill, the path is more clearly marked.
The view gets more and more stunning, the higher you climb (perhaps that goes without saying but it seems worth mentioning as we kept stopping to take photos and just soak it all in). The trail has a variety of lovely paths – some sections take you through the trees and other sections are on top of the rocks where you look down on Quidi Vidi, or out towards Cape Spear.
