The Klondike Trail

Newfoundland’s rugged coastline with ocean views dotted with icebergs, seabirds and whales.

Klondike Trail

The Klondike Trail is five kilometres each way from Elliston to Spillars Cove. The Klondike Trail was built from funds allocated by the Colonial government in the 1840’s. The trail started as a road to connect Elliston and Bonavista by way of Spillars Cove.

The Klondike Trail can be accessed from two points, one at the end of Elliston North on Route 238 and the other at the end of Spillars Cove off Route 230. The five km is rated easy to moderate. Not only does the trail offer spectacular coastal scenery and plenty of chances to see wildlife and seabirds, it also offers the hiker a chance to step back in time and retrace the footsteps of those who made their way from town to town as far back as the mid 1800’s.
