What a stunning, gruelling, totally worth it hike. Bring lots (lots!) of water and take it slow. on this hike we managed to run into a moose at the peak and some ptarmigan chicks and their mom.

The Copper Mine Falls Trail and the Cape Blow Me Down Trail are both awesome in their own ways.
Cape Blow Me Down Trail: https://youtu.be/WDqkJWdGYV4
At the end of the video you can see the really short hike to see the Copper Mine Trail Falls. Short hike, huge reward!

If you want a real challenge, the Cape Blow Me Down Trail, which is right next to the Copper Mine Falls Trail, will fit the bill. It is 3.8 km up and the same to come down. It took us 2:45 to climb it and 45 minutes to descend. You will never see views like this unless you take on this challenging hike. Definitely wear layers and bring food and snacks.

More a correction than a review. Dogs are NOT allowed on the LRT. There are certain trails where dogs on leashes are allowed in the Gros Morne National Park, but definitely not on the LRT.

Meh. Its a pieced together city walk that goes through alot of peoples disheveled backyards. Two stars because it is a trail that goes along waterford river, and I didnt get mugged.

I walked this area in the fall. Its very difficult in spots as there are no marked trails and much of the area is wet and boggy. I recommend visiting the area in the winter when the bog is frozen over.

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 ;)

Amazing trail with some amazing views along the way!

Yes it goes by a dump - the contrast really makes you think of how we interact with nature.

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.

Well maintained with lots of nice spots to view the river. Popular area for salmon fishers, moose, beaver, ducks and other wildlife. Be careful when water levels are high; this area often floods.

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!

Beautiful Trail! Well maintained and easy if you start from the southern trailhead. Starting from the north means you have to climb hundreds of stairs which is more difficult.

One of the 4 corners of the earth! Its a short hike, only about 30 min with a lot of stairs, but the view is worth it!

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.

Great trail. A little bit more than moderate from the base of the trail to the top.

You’re better off the go out & back from Bay Bulls - it’ll be approximately 25.4km (12.7km to the Spout) in total but it’s far more scenic!
