Retrace the paths of the first settlers through the boreal forest and along coastal headlands
The Damnable Trail is a network of trails developed largely from the remnants of old walking trails and hauling paths forged by the first settlers to the area. While many tourists have marvelled at the scenic drive down to and around the Eastport Peninsula, few have retraced the paths of the first settlers through the boreal forest and along coastal headlands. In the spirit of reconnecting with the “old” trails in the area and reawakening the outdoor spirit of the residents, this network of trails has broadened to include local community trails as well.
The Damnable Trail has something to offer just about everyone – from a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk at Chuff’s Bight (which is wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair) to a day-long multi kilometre hike that follows the ridge line of a dramatic coastline and takes visitors through scenic communities like Salvage or Happy Adventure. Anyone, visitor or resident, has an opportunity to experience the great outdoors in this area.
