Editorial Reviews


It is a nice little guide to, well, what the title states, Hikes of Eastern Newfoundland by Mary Smyth and Fred Hollingshurst, including the Avalon Peninsula and the East Coast Trail, the Bonavista Peninsula, Fogo Island, Change Islands and Twillingate. In the top picture, I marked the hikes that I hope to accomplish this summer, and the lower tabs are hikes I'd like to do if I get back to the Bonavista Peninsula this summer. The book is well laid out, focusing on regions, clearly indicating hike difficulty, trailheads, camping areas, and wilderness trails. As the book states, the maps are not to be used for navigation, but are good indicators of trail lengths, and for the clearly labeled trails, are sufficient guides for the average hiker. Each trail features some history and information about the trail, colour pictures, and a little box of added information, typically about Newfoundland terminology, added history, or information about the flora and/or fauna of the area. The book is also clear about its shortcomings, indicating that those looking to hike the East Coast Trail Association trails should contact the ECTA for further information. Similarly, some wilderness trails are described in the book, and the authors suggest either going on a guided hike, or at least checking in with the appropriate organizations before attempting these trails. Also, it is stressed that proper maps are necessary for these hikes. Two features I really like in this book are the small appendices of Wildflowers of Eastern Newfoundland and a Trail Completion Checklist. Certainly, for anyone passionate about floral identification should head out to these trails with a proper book about Newfoundland wildflowers, but for the more casual hiker, the appendix gives many of the more common wildflowers. I know I will start to keep this book in by tour bag to help me identify flowers for visitors I take on tour. The Trail Completion Checklist is a great addition for the achievement hunters, like myself. I normally would not mark in a book, but in this case, I made an exception and marked the trails I have done. This is a great book for anyone interested in hiking. I know I will be looking to pick up a copy of Hikes of Western Newfoundland for my trips across the island. --Goodreads -
