If can get this trail on a half descent day then it is fantastic. Have hiked it in the fog too and the view wasn’t quite the same.

My family and me use these trails in both the summer and winter. Great hiking trails with geocaching along the way! In the winter they have some great snowshoeing trails.

Great views of the city. Get ready for some stairs.. lots of stairs ;)

A nice walk through a old spruce forest. Not much to see along the way but the lookout is spectacular!

A beautiful leisurely trail. The fall colors were stunning and water sounds were soothing.

It may be scary, but climb the tower! The views are breathtaking! Walking around the little trails at the base of the tower are really enjoyable, too. Can't recommend this enough!

This is the site of an abandoned ski hill. The trail is very overgrown. There are makeshift campsites along the trail. A nice place to have a "boil-up" or campfire but nearby Thomas Howe trails are much nicer.

Beautiful spot to watch the sun set.

Love this trail! Built recently, this is one of the best trails in Terra Nova National Park. Just be cautious when it's wet; the rocks can be very slippery.

Beautiful views, especially on the first day hike out of the gorge. You get lots of beautiful highlands after that. Aside from the very beginning and end, the elevations are fairly mild.

I can't overstate how wet it was. The entire landscape is boggy and absorbs the frequent rain like a sponge. You will constantly be in ankle-deep water. As such, lots of bugs. It also get quite cold (like 4°C in August at night).

Navigation is the real challenge. As they tell you, don't rely on foot paths to show you the trail, you'll need to be on your GPS pretty frequently. Note that there are multiple routes: I had the official route, the one from here, and another on my garmin. They're all somewhat different (a fact I didn't appreciate at first, to my own detriment).

The official trial is the black-track in AllTrails. It tends to go over hills, whereas the AllTrails route goes around those hills, making for a longer, flatter, and wetter trail.

I would STRONGLY suggest following the official trail on the route between Harding's Pond and Green Island Pond. We started with the AllTrails route then turned back and did the official one for this section. The two routes split right as you leave Harding's Pond, with the official trail taking you more northward into the hills. You'll get much nicer views on the official trail; the AllTrails route will be flatter, but will take you through difficult tuckamore and over a cliff right before Green Island Pond that's quite dangerous if its wet.

I would also follow the official trail on the last day's descent. The trails are a bit confusing here. I didn't see the AllTrails descent, but given the cliff it took me down the previous day, I wasn't gonna trust it.

In any event, this was a challenging hike. Not so much physically, but more because of the wetness and navigation issues. It's well worth it, though. Gorgeous.

Easy, scenic trail.

My personal favourite close to home.

A great hike. Be prepared for a gruelling hike up the side of the mountain. The trial is uneven and the rocks can be slippery so appropriate footwear is a must. Be also prepared for windy experience at the summit. Suggest dressing in layers and bringing a good windbreaker and headgear. Overall an enjoyable hike with magnificent vistas at the top. Bring plenty of water.

Love this trail! There are several other side trails that can be added on to make this longer but the views are great along the coast and the forested areas are beautiful as well.

Short trail which leads to a significant geological site. If you like rocks this is for you; if not, I would pass on this one.

Did this back in September of 09. Was absolutely spectacular. I lived in Montreal back then but now live in Calgary, so Banff is my backyard and as beautiful as the Canadian Rockies are, this has got to be my top five. I was not a seasoned hiker back then and was in my late 20’s so I had the motivation and the discipline to complete this however now in my late 30’s as a veteran hiker I can still say Gros Morne is a doable and worthy hike for the beginner. The tough hike is rewarded with spectacular views.

Easy trail with fantastic views. The babbling brook near the end of the first half made us turn around early. Hiking poles for that section would have helped us.

Hiked the Trail on Sept 1st 2018. Great hike with amazing views. Lots of stairs, many of them newly installed. Great work done during the shut down. Take your time and enjoy the great views of St. John's Harbor and the Rugged Newfoundland Coast line into the Atlantic Ocean. Some seating areas provided to just sit and soak it in. Take the hike and enjoy it.

Great trail for families! At the end it was a real treat to see the little waterfall and walk on the suspension bridge. The view and peacefulness of the area makes this a must see!

wonderful hike. my friend and I took 2 cars and parked one on either end. we started in flatrock and walked to torbay. bring lots of water!

The views are spectacular; second to none. Them alone make the hike worth it. Although there are multiple sections each with slightly different terrain, my one critique is they all go for a long time without really changing much. The steep trek up to the summit is simply a monstrous shale climb, and it got a bit monotonous towards the end. All in all I recommend this hike for sure. Not as difficult as it may seem, but make sure to be careful on all the rocks.

My favourite trail in Gros Morne!
