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.

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.

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.

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.

We found a brochure on this trail system at the airport, and since we were driving through the area we thought we'd pick it up just in case we wanted a walk. It turned out we decided to make our oatmeal breakfast at the nature center at the new picnic facilities, then walked some of the trail afterwards. It's clear that a lot of love and thought has gone into this place. We thoroughly enjoyed the peacefulness and added touches like excellent signage and playgrounds. Just before we started walking a school bus dropped off a load of kids. Their leader said, "okay, take out your binoculars!" and off they went. This place will be a gift for generations to come, and we were so pleased to become acquainted with it yesterday.

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!

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.

This shit trash

This is a nice short trail. Not much to see but a good place for a picnic or to walk your dog.

An easy walk, we walked on last day of September, beautiful day, a little breezy around one end of pond but great fall colours for our photography, the trail was being enjoyed by several dog walkers, joggers and people just out for a stroll.

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.

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.

Wicked trail! So many wonderful viewing spots and Englee is one of the prettiest, nicest and liveliest fishing community I've seen and I've seen a lot of fishing communities.

Really nice trail. It could use some more signage since it was much longer than we originally thought it was going to be and we weren't sure if we were going the right way at times. We hiked to Glass Hole and almost stopped 100m short of the actual Glass Hole because we found what we thought was a Glass Hole. Keep going, you'll know you found it when you find it. It's worth the hike. There are other trails too in the community, so talk to locals or see the map at Conche Lookout Platform which shows all the trails in Conche.

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.

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.

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

Incredible day. It has some steep inclines and declines but nothing crazy. Unbelievable views of the towns, rock faces, beaches, and geography. I see why it’s rated easy for regular hikers but if you’re a newbie I’d consider it a moderate. Don’t let it stop you though it’s an awesome day

This is a great easy hike, but i would rate it as moderate if you are going all the way to the top of Fox Island. There is one rather steep section, but there is also a rope which makes it doable even for someone with less mountaineering experience. Very much worth the climb, as the view from the top of fox island are amazing. There is also a lovely beach right at the foot of fox island if you want a nice place for a picnic lunch.

Always a nice hike! Some significant work has been done to extend this trail and make it easier to access!
