10 minute drive from the Artisan Inn
Just minutes from Trinity, in Trinity East, Skerwink has been selected as one of the top 35 walks in North America and Europe (Aug 2003) of Travel and Leisure magazine World's Best Awards issue.
The trail is rated Moderate and takes approximately 2 hours to complete (longer if you are passionate about photography) and is a 5.3km coastal loop. At certain locations hikers may feel as though they are standing at the edge of the world. Steeper sections of the trail have been lined with stairs and board walks cover any boggy sections. Many lookouts have been built with benches allowing visitors to stop and enjoy the view.
Moose, foxes, bald eagles, whales, seabirds and icebergs are often spotted.
Guests of the Artisan Inn may borrow a hand carved walking stick to make the trek a little easier.
