Conception Bay South Offers Top Trail Destination

Conception Bay South Offers Top Trail Destination

Conception Bay South’s top tourism attraction saw 300,000 visitors in 2022. Now, the Town of Conception Bay South is inviting more people to explore its most popular asset and renowned trail system, the T’Railway.

As many outdoor enthusiasts know, the old Newfoundland Railway through Conception Bay South, called the T’Railway, is a cherished 14-kilometer asset that offers incredible coastal views, heritage boards, and year-round accessibility. 

“If you haven’t explored our remarkable trail system yet, we invite you to come walk, cycle, cross-country ski, or snowshoe along the T’Railway this winter. It’s maintained all year long, meaning there’s always an opportunity for adventure in Conception Bay South,” said Mayor Darrin Bent. 

In 2023, the Town of Conception Bay South will invest another $1 million to expand this top attraction.

“In 2023, we will complete the fourth and final phase of the T’Railway project, which consists of a 3.2-kilometer extension from Doyles Road to Indian Pond, along with the replacement of a trestle at Seal Cove Pond. We are very excited to develop this trail through the west end of our community. We invite you to come explore Conception Bay South.” said Mayor Darrin Bent.

Trail counters were installed along the trail system in November 2020. Since then, approximately 600,000 users have been counted on its route, demonstrating the T’Railway as a top attraction for the town.
