The Starlite Trail Rehabilitation
We are currently exploring how we can upgrade the experience of the Starlite trail for locals and visitors to the area.
We are working with private companies, Tourism Southwest, Atlantic Canda Opportunities Agency (ACOA), and the Department of Industry, Energy and Technology (DIET) to improve the Starlite Hiking Trail as a regional hiking destination that is important to the Codroy Valley experience and the region of Western Newfoundland.
What We Are Trying To Achieve
The Codroy Valley Area Development Association seeks professional and technical services to design/re-develop an existing trail. They wish to design and build a new trail into a natural surface trail system for walking and hiking purposes in the Codroy Valley, Newfoundland and Labrador, on the trail system commonly known as Starlite Trail.
The proposed project will upgrade the current Starlite Trail and construct a significant extension to develop a tourism-oriented trail development to attract non-resident visitors to the Southwest Coast region of Newfoundland and Labrador. The existing trail extends approximately 2.5km from the trailhead near the Trans-Canada Highway in the Codroy Valley area, ascending to the top of the Long Range Mountains to a scenic lookout area.
The proposed development will also require a route extension to circumnavigate the highlands that surround Campbell’s Lake (more or less maintaining the viewscape of Campbell’s Lake). It will then descend to Campbell’s Lake to reconnect back to the existing trail, creating a looped trail, an approximate route of 12km. An additional route to circumnavigate Campbell’s Lake itself is also proposed, an approximate route of 2.75km.
