Port Rexton is home to breathtaking trails including the internationally renowned Skerwink Trail. Skerwink was ranked among the top 35 trails in North America and Europe by Travel & Leisure magazine (2003). The 5.3 km coastal loop provides an opportunity to view and photograph eagles, sea stacks, icebergs, and whales (in season) as well as historic sites in the area.

Both trails are part of a network of 8 trails of varying difficulties located within the Discovery Trail (from Trinity to Bonavista) hosted by Hike Discovery. Check out their website at
