The mountains across the water (on the north side of the Humber Valley)
are part of the Appalachian Mountain chain and in 2003, the Newfoundland and Labrador
chapter of the International Appalachian Trail was founded.
The Humber Valley Trail starts 5 minutes down the road to the right of the house.
The Appalachian Mountains were formed
in the Paleozoic Era more than 250 million years ago.
The Sentier International des Appalaches / International Appalachian Trail (SIA/IAT) is a hiking trail that connects all the Appalachian regions in North America from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mount Katahdin, Maine, U.S.A.
It then crosses the Canadian-American border and continues through New Brunswick, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and Newfoundland.
The Newfoundland section of the IAT begins at Port aux Basques and extends north to Crow Head near L'Anse aux Meadows on the Strait of Belle Isle.
