Explore the most popular lake trails in Newfoundland and Labrador with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Took this hike earlier today to connect with the boat tour on the lake. The hike is underwhelming- wide open on a wide (vehicle) gravel path. Some of the scenery is cool as you get a good viez of the different types of vegetation. The boat ride is well worth the hike as the views on the lake are awesome.

Hiked the first week of July, it was early spring time conditions which meant the bugs were not bad, we still had to traverse snowy sections and the grass was just starting to grow. Amazing part of the world! It’s difficulty made it that much more rewarding and the views are incredible!

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.

Underwhelming if you're not doing the boat tour.

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

Fantastic hike, I’ve done it twice now, like others have said be prepared for a gruelling first day while you walk up and out of Western Brook.

Be aware of moose & caribou leads as they’re easily mistaken for trails and can lead you the wrong way.

Camping sites have tent pads and bear boxes for easy storage and comfort.

Map and compass skills are a great asset to have on this hike in case of gps failure. Plus it’s always a good time to dust off the ol’ M&C skills and just use them for a pretty authentic hiking experience.

Beautiful walk but be careful of the dog poop that’s left around from people not picking up after pets.

Lovely trail network. Super easy. Most trails are flat enough to take stroller or maybe even a wheelchair on. A short sidetrail takes you to a look out over the marsh. Excellent place for bird-watching. Playground and community vegetable garden located at trailhead. The pond is small but is a nice place to throw your kayak in for a quick paddle.

This is a nice easy trail which has an option for an additional side trail to a look-out which overlooks Trinity Bay and the community of Trinity. Well maintained with many educational signs which showcase the areas rich logging history. There are also volley ball courts, picnic areas, playgrounds and a swimming area with change rooms at the trail head.

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!

well worth the effort to access this trail. the views are breathtaking! the first day is challenging as it is a continuous climb so start early in the day to reach the top with time to set up camp before sun set. this trail is very popular so there are many paths. don't trust someone else's path. follow your GPS and map. the last portion of trail is very popular as you meet up with day hikers summiting gros morne mountain. enjoy bragging to them about your epic trip. you deserve it!

Did this hike along with the North Rim to make it a little longer and glad I did. Very beautiful and rugged landscape. Had to check in at park HQ and get a caribou tracker in case I didn't come back and they would be able to find me. Took a cab to the Western Brook ferry and from there headed north. Spent my first night on the beach and after that all signage disappears so be ready to use GPS and orientation to find your way. There is no real trail and once you get going any sign of footprints or beaten path are intermittent. The bugs can be bad but it's usually windy so that helps keep them off. Water isn't an issue as there are plenty of small ponds along the way. There are a few basic wood platforms to set up a tent with bear bins along the way but honestly you can camp anywhere it's flat. Hiked it in September and really lucked out with the weather. Beautiful mostly untouched wilderness, can't recommend this one enough.
