- Posted on inShort Walks
Length in KM 1.5
Time Taken 30
Flat rock is a small community about 15mins from St Johns. From the Wharf at Flatrock you can walk up onto the top of the cliff by following the trails. You can enjoy fantastic views of the ocean and cliff line at the top of this short (but steep) walk onto the rock formation called the beamer. Amazing whale watching area.
Flatrock has a small play area for children just opposite where you park your vehicle.
Part of the longer East coast trail, this is a short viewpoint walk on “Father Troys Trail”, which is part of the East Coast Trails “stiles cove path” which runs approximately 15kms that takes you to pouch cove. The walk and images featured here can be experienced only a few minutes walk from the car.
If you wish to walk some of the stiles cove path head to the very top of the beamer and look for a hard to see sign on the right hand side. Walking along this narrow path for a few KM will tale you up some very steep narrow steps, but you will be rewarded with incredible views of the ocean.
