Hiking Trails

The hiking trails meander for over 5 kilometres along the Manuels River valley in eastern Newfoundland. The main trail entrance is located adjacent to Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre on Route 60, just west of Manuels River Bridge.

Regular footwear, a camera, and binoculars will enable you to enjoy the environmental treasures of the river system. The Canyon Trail can be walked in about 45 minutes and the Ocean Trail can be walked in about 90 minutes (round trip). However, we advise that you allow two hours or more for each trail if you’d like to stop at the scenic view points, take photographs, or possibly do some “rock-hopping”. Persons touring the Manuels River do so at their own risk.

Public Ocean and Canyon guided fossil site vistss run daily in the summer, at 10:30 am and 2 pm and can be arranged throughout the year by appointment. Pricing is as follows;

$15.00 for Adults

$9.00 for Students/Seniors/Youth (aged 4-17)

$42.00 for a Family of 5 (2 Adults & 3 Children)

FREE for Children Under 4.

Audio tours, GPS Units, Binoculars, and Snowshoes are also available to rent for $5.00+HST/hour for children and $7.00+HST for adults, from the Admissions Desk.

If you have any concerns with the trail conditions or notice anything that should be brought to our attention, please feel free to report to us either in person at the Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre front desk or call us at (709) 834-2099 ext. 204. Thanks!
