The "Maberly to Little Catalina Trail" provides one of the best hikes anywhere. It is 16.5 km in length and contains many items of interest such as the breath taking scenery. Experience scenic Flowers Cove, the site of many a "boil up." Likewise, if hiking from the Little Catalina, note the rocks just offshore at the beginning of the trail know as the "Shag Rocks." This is the site of the shipwreck of the Ella Rudolph. From either starting the point this trail is something that has to be seen to be appreciated.
The "Klondike Trail" located on the Northern section of town is well known. This trail was regularly used years ago as a horse and cart trail, leading from Elliston to the community of Spillars Cove. Today this trail provides a scenic walk for the adventurer.
The "Elliston Ridge Trail" was once the main means of access to the U.S. Elliston Ridge Base. During the 1950's and 60's this base was part of the general North American defense planning. Today you can walk this trail and in addition to the panoramic view of the entire area you can examine the evidence left behind by a "Cold War" structure. In addition at the top of this trail you can view Elliston's Felsenmeer or "boulder sea.
The "Mark's Path Trail" like the "Elliston Ridge Trail" was the also means of access to an American Outpost. When the Base was active oil tankers would dock at Norder Cove and oil would be pumped to large oil containers located on the Mark's Path Trail. Today you can also walk this trail and enjoy the landscape while visiting some "Cold War" reminders. In addition at the top of this trail you can view Elliston's Felsenmeer or "boulder sea."
