Great hike through forests to the Tableland. Nice views and chances to see wildlife.

We had a lot of trouble finding the correct path. There are many flags and ribbons leading you to a variety of incorrect location, although the views from these were still good. Unfortunately we wasted so much time finding the trail that we didn’t have enough time to finish it. Would definitely try it again if we had time. It would be good to clear out the false markers and install more prominent ones on the path.
We also hiked it the day after a big rainfall and the trail was very wet - make sure your boots are waterproof.

We spent two wonderful nights camped at the Green Gardens campsite. The hike in was beautiful and the terrain changed so much in such a short time. The trail was pretty wet and muddy and hiking poles definitely helped. The 4 campsites are in a gorgeous location each with their own raised wood platform and picnic table. There is easy access to fresh water at a small stream as well as a pit toilet (no roof). There were chipmunks but they didn’t seem interested in our food and there was no food storage system so we hung our food in a tree. The lovely resident herd of sheep kept us company day and night! The stairs down to the beach are fine even though the sign says they are closed. Absolutely glorious sunset on second night and epic thunder, lightning and buckets of rain on the first. This hike was the highlight for my daughter and I during our visit to Gros Morne. Highly recommend!!

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)

Excellent hike with varied landscapes.

Beautiful trail. Freshly maintained. Nice views.

This trail starts off flat and in the open. You srtart with a walk across the earth's mantel and then over a mountain ridge leading down to a wonderful vista. The path takes you to the cliffs over looking the ocean. Continue to walk along the cost where you will see heards of sheep. Things to know: mostly unshaded, rocky, steep inclines and declines, windy. Allow 4 to 5 hrs.

great hike, worth every step

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

Great hike. You pass through a lot of different terrain down to the coast. It was more shaded than I thought it would be though you’re still exposed for a good part of it. The hike out is the hardest part though it’s not terrible. The stairs down to the beach itself are marked closed and it looks like the trail used to be part of of a loop but they closed half of it because of erosion. You can tell where it ends pretty easily as there is a sign and the trail itself breaks away partly down some steps. There are some sheep roaming around by the cliffs and plenty of scat.

Great scenery, probably our highlight of 3 days spent in Gros Morne.

Such a beautiful view once you get to the cliff! Walking out was a lot easier then coming back! Be away of the lose rocks you walk on and the wildlife! One couple I talked to saw a black bear with 3 cubs! A long hike but worth it for the breathtaking views!

The Wallace Brook portion of the trail looks to be permanently closed (according to Parks Canada website June 2018), but we found the hike from Long Pond down to the seaside to be quite sufficient. It's a moderate to challenging trail, with ever-changing scenery; highly recommend!

the trail was not well kept. nice beautiful views. worth the hike in . good luck on the hike out

BEAUTIFUL views..trail well marked. sometimes a sheep here can be seen. nice beach. can be done as a loop(part of trail is currently not maintained) or an out and back. worth it!!

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

A beautiful trail with a variety dynamic views along the way. This trail has everything from mountains, cliffs, streams, waterfalls, seastacks and cobblestone shoreline. Make sure to give yourself time to relax and enjoy the beach when you come to the shoreline. The trail is about a 9km return and the park map suggests 3-4hrs to complete.

Great hike through three types of scenery ending in a spectacular view of the coast. We walked down to the shore and along it to a small waterfall peaking out. The hike in was medium but the hike back a little more difficult. We were also treated to a show when a sheep chased down a family if four haha! Highly recommend this hike!

Views at the shoreline are spectacular and it's nice to be able to head down to the water. Don't be surprised if you meet a herd of sheep in the meadows. Really lovely. Downside is you see the road for the first bit of the hike. Distance calculations are a bit weird. It can be anywhere from 9km to double that if you do the loop. We went in July 2017 and a section of the seaside trail and all of Wallace Brook trail were closed. Still worth it.

Beautiful trail which leads you to a breathtaking shoreline! There are quite a bit of stairs to climb so I was surprised to see it listed as easy; moderate is more appropriate. Take water on a hot day and a hiking stick. We went when it was very foggy but it cleared up at the end!
