nice trail with stunning views, but I wouldn‘ t call it easy; I am used to hike in the Swiss Alps, there a trail like this would be labelled moderate or even difficult (as the tourist map of Twillingate does it)

Ok forested trail. Some blackflies.Trail veers onto a beach then back to the woods. A few small brooks and a larger waterfall.

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!

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

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.

The most beautiful hike. Took our time getting up the hill as it was so hot going up without any sun coverage. Be sure to bring lots of water with you.

AmaZing and challenging hike. Stunning views. Would be a great place to camp as well.

Beautiful places to see Eagles and Wales, Possibly seals!

Did it today. Unfortunately weather turned foggy and views were almost non existent. The climb to the summit was demanding but doable. Still some snow but ok. The hike down is more demanding as the rock trail can be tricky and a little hard on the knees. Although some wore lighter shoes, a decent hiker would be recommended.

Underwhelming if you're not doing the boat tour.

This is a great hike but I would not recommend hiking up the steep rockpile path when there is snow on the mountain. I was genuinely fearful for my life!

A easy trail. However it was enjoyable.

The park now says dogs are allowed on leash. The information is wrong. However the ascent is very steep and rocky. For some dogs this might be a challenge.

Fun to explore

The only reason I'd suggest this hike is if you are trying to complete the ECT.

Great hike and amazing views. It makes for a long and strenuous day but well worth it.

excellent trail with the majority being flat land along the coastline

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!

Great quick walk along the water

It's an okay hike. Far better choices on the east coast trail.

Beautiful view from the top and super cool staircase through the cliff caves

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

The most popular trail in the park, takes you along the inner reaches of Newman Sound. View shorebirds, tidal mud flats and Pissamare Falls near Headquarters Wharf. From the Visitor Centre to the Outdoor Theatre is approximately 4.7km.

From the Visitor Centre, head across the bridge over Salton’s Brook and meander along the coast of inner Newman Sound. The coastal view will weave in and out of sight. Some areas are open to the coast as a result of pockets of blow downs from recent hurricane winds. Follow the trail down to a small sandy beach and take in the view looking up and down the sound. About halfway the trail breaks out to a road and parking lot – Headquarters Wharf. Once you pick up the trail again there is a small path off to the right that leads to a small waterfall – Pissamare Falls. Back on the trail again, stroll to through the forest to Sandy Point, formed by the deposition of sediment along the coast, here you will see remnants of past human use in this area. Then wind your way into Newman Sound Day Use Area and Campground – the heart of Terra Nova National Park. This trail is easy with some moderate climbs.

Amazing trail!!!

Great easy walk with all the awesome outdoor/ water sounds.

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.

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.
