The trail is located south of St. John's, in the vicinity of Shea Heights, along the road to Cape Spear. The trip to Freshwater Bay offers an extended downhill with a few heart-stopping hazards to spice up a rocky ride to the coast. This ride is a favorite among extreme technical enthusiasts and bike store owners of St. John's. Riders enjoy recounting tales of how they hurtled down this rocky gully, and bike store owners look forward to the repairs that follow this excursion, which may include new pulley wheels, derailleurs, brake pads, and the occasional rim. Indeed, this is a 3-mile out-and-back ride that can wreak more havoc on your bike components than an entire season of moderate off-road riding. Scenery: Expansive views across the water and out to the high cliffs overlooking Freshwater Bay.
