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.

Not a bad hike. I would say it’s in between easy and intermediate, skill level wise. Some parts are flat, soft ground. And others require navigating rocks and hilly terrain. The trail starts off in a tree covered area but opens up after about 15 minutes of walking, with few places of shade. A few vantage points provide nice photographic opportunities. Bring bug spray and water.

Amazing hike. Minor challenges. Must be able to hold on to chain drilled into rockface to pass parts of tail. Worth the views!

a very nice trail with two ways to go up. Make sure to Take the Governor’s stairs as well either up or down.

great hike, worth every step

Very easy trail and you never meet anyone on it even if there’s a crowd there

Great views, half in the hot sun and half in the rain and wind. Welcome to nfld!

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

We saw an eagle nest with a young bird. We also enjoyed the view all along our ascension. Nice path to discover St-John

This isn’t a review so much of this trail (which is still quite worth it) as it is of the unmarked trail that goes up to the bowl and then the rim. You can pick up a map for this route at the visitor center. It’s a great hike with really unique terrain and terrific views. Easily our favorite hike of our visit. Lots of scree and and it’s easy to get lost higher up near rim. People have made some cairns near the rim but there are so many of them I wouldn’t trust them too much to help guide your way back. Also if it got foggy you could get lost pretty easily as everything looks the same once you get up high enough.

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.

We went down this trail for the boat tour. The view is nice at the end of the trail and the trail is pretty accessible and well groomed (more of an unpaved road). I wouldn’t go out of my way to walk this though unless you’re going on the tour.

Beautiful ocean views with lookouts intertwined with magical forests. Love the sporadic muskoka chairs along the way to sit and reflect on the beauty around you.

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)

We did this trail earlier today. Its a nice easy walk suitable for all ages, around Berry Head Pond. Though we did not see any wildlife you can see that there could be potential to see moose either early in the day or late in the evening. A nice short walk.

One of my favorities short distance trails in St. John’s. Great if you only have a couple of hours to spare!

Jawdroppingly gorgeous trail. Walk up to a dramatic cloud forest interspersed with lichen fields and 300m cliffs that make you feel like you are on the edge of the earth.

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

We did this hike earlier today, it is a great hike, wilth an awesome waterfall at the end. The hike itself is easy with only slight elevation changes along the route. The surface is a mix of boardwalk (lots thru swampy areas) and dirt or crushed rock. The hike takes you thru many different vegetation areas and a detour thru the moose (free) enclosure easily demonstrates the impact that moose have on the local vegetation. The other detour to little pond is worthwhile, but is a little more challenging with more elevation changes... a great hike, the falls are truly spectacular.

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!

We had a great time on this hike. It goes up and down and offers many views of the ocean.

We did this trail yesterday for the first time. An easy trail of packed and loose crushed rock, hiking shoes would be a good idea (always). The views and landscape are unique, as others have mentioned itstkind of like walking on Mars, with all the red rocks and barren landscape. The view at the end is worrh the hike and as a bonus there is a nice waterfall by the end as well. A good hike for all ages, just keep in mind you are in full sun the whole hike.

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

Magnifique randonnée

Didn’t have time to do the entire length but went approx 1/2 way. Absolutely delightful.
Not always well marked, but you can find your way.
A lot of climbing involved so make sure to wear good footwear.

A lovely moderate level hike. Varying topography from scrambling over exposed granite rock faces, to through a forest tunnel to along the edge of a bay plunging down to the water. Simply lovely.

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.
