I walk this trail often for exercise or to take photos. It runs from the parkway (Long Pond) to Quidi Vidi Lake. A lovely sanctuary in the middle of the city. Especially beautiful in autumn.

I have had the pleasure of walking the Rennie's River Trail on many occasions. Groomed trails within a gorgeous setting. The hike is good for almost anyone as it is not difficult. A great way to explore the city and the outdoors. Highly recommend it.

Excellent trail. Quiet and tree lined. Do the walk before dark if you can because it is t lit all the way through. It is a nice walk.

Like something you would see on a film. The locals take care of the trail and it seems little free. I saw everything from trout to ducks at a very comfortable walk

The trail is roughly 5k round trip from Quidi Vidi lake. That will get you not quite to the end of the trail, there is a bit more if you cross over a busy road, but it didn't look like it was worth the extra distance. So... More
