Description

The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is a breathtaking coastal path that rivals other similar paths in the country for the most scenic. The paved path curves along the shoreline for close to eleven miles. It starts downtown and stretches to the chalet at Kincaid Park and is a local favorite for all sorts of outdoor excursions just outside of the city.

This trail has it all. From following the fault line of the 1964 earthquake to cruising through scented forests searching for moose, this gem is truly worth the effort for one and all.

Though paved, many may enjoy hiking this since the views are amazing.
