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.

One of my favourite secret spots. A short but very steep, unmarked trail brings you to a beautiful swimming and salmon fishing spot next to a waterfall along Mint Brook.

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.

Stopped for a break from driving on the Trans Canada. Spent an hour or so could have spent a day. Trails much more extensive that All trails site suggests. All level. Some very level. Some boardwalk. Some with Rick's and roots. No mud. Great views if ponds. Lots of birch. Heard/saw a Loon.

Absolutely stunning! Easy trail which takes you along the rver to a breath taking view of Rencontre Lake and the Fjords. A must if you are in the area!

Wonderful dog walk. Great for visitors like us

Well maintained trail with some nice views of the lake.

This, less frequented. section of trail in Thomas Howe Forest is a rough and muddy, but scenic trail that loops along Gander lake and back along a old logging road. There are many spots to stop and take in the view of Gander Lake, Newfoundland's third largest lake. Their is evidence from old plane crashes in the area. It took about 2 hours to walk the entire loop with 2 small children slowing us down.
Its a nice hike if you are looking for something a bit be challenging than the main trails in Thomas Howe

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

Interesting history. Trails are flat and easy. Good place to bring your dog to run.

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

Lovely trail network. Super easy. Most trails are flat enough to take stroller or maybe even a wheelchair on. A short sidetrail takes you to a look out over the marsh. Excellent place for bird-watching. Playground and community vegetable garden located at trailhead. The pond is small but is a nice place to throw your kayak in for a quick paddle.
