History

A Part of Who We Are

A rock cut is an overhang in the cliffs or a cut in the rock that offers shelters from the wind that consistently batters Twillingate island. Back in the day, older people in the community would hike up into the hills and tuck into a rock cut to check on the water conditions, the ice flow, or to see their sons coming home from sea. This was such a frequent occurrence that these rock cuts became regular local gathering spots. Over time, these paths were beaten down and now form the incredible coastal hiking trail system known as the Rockcut Twillingate Trails.
