Twillingate Islands  have spectacular walking trails along the coastline, across the cliffs with spectacular ocean views. In season, an iceberg may be waiting around any corner! Readers' Digest lists our trails as one of the 10 best in Canada!

Starting in 2020, Twillingate initiated a trail re-development project. Five of the island's trails have been upgraded under the Rockcut Twillingate Trails banner. The Rockcut Trails is a system of beautiful hiking trails located along the coast of Twillingate's South Island. Immerse yourself in the Rockcut Twillingate Trails experience by overnight camping on one of the designated campsites.This trail system provides about 25 kms of spectacular coastal hiking trails:
