Interesting to walk the small village that has very colourful homes. Some contraversary over the building of new condominiums there. The price of homes has escalated and some people apparently can't afford the property taxes now.

Easy to access from downtown and not challenging terrain and lots of other hiking trails close by that are more challenging and very picturesque.

We started at one end of the lake loop, and made our way into Quidi Vidi, visited the local brewery, and bought some Iceberg beer, scenic spot, great for lunch!

Walking from Quidi Vidi Village back to St. John's downtown by taking the Lake Trail is pure joy. Easy to walk even for those not experienced with walking. A great urban trail.
