Great view from the top

on Ochre Hill Lookout Loop

13 days ago

I loved the elevation and just the ability to see a lot of the park.

Great hike and views from up top!

The view at the end is worth the trek with the tablelands on one side of the valley and the more familiar hills stretching out opposite. As you travel along the small pond you cross a ton of streams, dipping the trail down and up, otherwise it would be flat until the narrows where you climb up to the base of the tablelands. Depending on the flow you may be able to fill up bottles with cool crisp water flowing down off the edge of the tablelands (I drank it unpurified, I'm fine)

View is fantastic!

Short walk down to a few lookouts and ocean view. Really nice to go down on the rocks and at low tide can go through some tidal pools. Overall more of a walk than hike.

Excellent hike with varied landscapes.

Beautiful trail. Freshly maintained. Nice views.

This, less frequented. section of trail in Thomas Howe Forest is a rough and muddy, but scenic trail that loops along Gander lake and back along a old logging road. There are many spots to stop and take in the view of Gander Lake, Newfoundland's third largest lake. Their is evidence from old plane crashes in the area. It took about 2 hours to walk the entire loop with 2 small children slowing us down.
Its a nice hike if you are looking for something a bit be challenging than the main trails in Thomas Howe

Amazing hike. Minor challenges. Must be able to hold on to chain drilled into rockface to pass parts of tail. Worth the views!

Very easy trail and you never meet anyone on it even if there’s a crowd there

The tablelands portion was beautiful with great views of the surrounding area. Not a lot of traffic on this trail either compared to some of the others so the solitude was nice. The second mile to mile and a half is fairly narrow and muddy with a lot of vegetation overhanging the trail. Some of it was either hogweed or cow parsnip so keep an eye out for it and steer clear. I wouldn’t go out of my way to do this trail again but it definitely was a nice time and had its moments. If I could skip ahead to the tablelands portion somehow I’d probably rate it higher

Beautiful ocean views with lookouts intertwined with magical forests. Love the sporadic muskoka chairs along the way to sit and reflect on the beauty around you.

nice trail with stunning views, but I wouldn‘ t call it easy; I am used to hike in the Swiss Alps, there a trail like this would be labelled moderate or even difficult (as the tourist map of Twillingate does it)

It was an awesome hike if you’re looking for something outside of Terra Nova and the bugs. It take you on the Salvage town that is very beautiful and the hike give great town views. After that the coastline hike is just great. We had encounters with three minke whales on our off the trail hike. We did go on our own path for about 1 km on the shore hiking the rocks and spent about 5 hours watching the water. I’d do this hike over and over again.

A easy trail. However it was enjoyable.

This trail was slightly muddy, but worth the walk in. The falls were beautiful, but we were told by locals that if there hasn't been any rain in the middle of the summer, there might not be any water. The water we saw was crystal clear and blueish-green. You could see clear to the bottom. I wish we had bathing suits and a towel with us!

Interesting history. Trails are flat and easy. Good place to bring your dog to run.

great trail, north head is partially closed however, unfortunately

Beautiful but closed for construction.

Amazing view!

Was pleasantly surprised with this trail. Always ask the locals what their favourite hikes are. Would hike this again in a heartbeat!

Super easy and stunning views all around. Depending on the time of year you can also get some local berries as you do the hike.

Beautiful views and access to the sea make this hike a must-do for anyone looking for a quick hike while staying near Rocky Harbour in Gros Morne

It was a beautiful day, but got cold near/at Cape Spear, so bring layers. Hiking shoes or boots are needed since there are a few areas where it's really rocky (vertical climbs for 20+ feet) and muddy (river crossings). The trail is well-marked and well-maintained.

This is a fabulous hiking trail network with many different routes available from a 30 min walk to a multi hour day hike. The views of Salvage are spectacular! Whales and Icebergs can be seen from the many viewpoints along the trail. Old cemeteries and saltbox homes remind us of how things used to be. This is one of my favourite hikes. Highly recommend!

Nice views from the top, watched cruise ship come in, downtown is lovely, and the people are oh so friendly!

A beautiful trail, very well maintained. Some slightly strenuous climbing at the halfway point, and near the lookout point. If you want to view the sunrise, which can be spectacular, I would try to start your walk about one hour before dawn. Note there is no trailhead parking, and the residents have "no parking" signs up, so park on Penny's Pond Road.
