Did an overnight stay from Dec 8th to 9th. The climb was rough; the combination of rock and solid ice doesn’t allow microspikes (they’ll bend on the rock) so I used a chain-like alternative to get up the mountain side. At the summit, the visibility was low with fog and blowing snow, but the guide arrows are enough to get you through. On the first few km down the mountain, there’s almost no sight of the trail with 90+ cm of snow to trek through, so hang on to your gps and break when necessary. It was a grueling hike in winter, but so very worth it! Keep an eye on the weather, and good luck

Spectacular! The effort is strongly rewarded!

The view is amazing all around

well worth the effort to access this trail. the views are breathtaking! the first day is challenging as it is a continuous climb so start early in the day to reach the top with time to set up camp before sun set. this trail is very popular so there are many paths. don't trust someone else's path. follow your GPS and map. the last portion of trail is very popular as you meet up with day hikers summiting gros morne mountain. enjoy bragging to them about your epic trip. you deserve it!

Amazing views. Trail can be quite challenging was very wet and boggy

Amazing but incredibly difficult on the body. A rocky ascend to the top with an amazing view is only about a third of the trek. The hike down the backside and around is the other two. Beautiful scenery that changes as you go. Blueberry bushes for snacking up and down. Recommended start is 10-11 as it takes 6-8 hours.

Snug Harbour is absolutely beautiful! Crisp clear water with gorgeous mountain views. The first section of the trail is heavily trafficked (as it is the trail to the Western Brooke Pond Ferry), but then you fork off onto the Snug Harbour trail which is lightly trafficked. You will have to ford across the Western Brooke River, so be prepared (water can be anywhere from knee to waist deep with a following current). The trail after this point was very muddy and often overgrown. After the trail reconnected onto the shoreline, I opted to stick along the shore instead of going back on the marked trail through the woods (to avoid the mud holes and slow pace caused by them). Then after I forded across a second small brooke, I reconnected with the marked trail. From this point it was an easy 5 minutes into Snug Harbour.

A beautiful trail with a variety dynamic views along the way. This trail has everything from mountains, cliffs, streams, waterfalls, seastacks and cobblestone shoreline. Make sure to give yourself time to relax and enjoy the beach when you come to the shoreline. The trail is about a 9km return and the park map suggests 3-4hrs to complete.

Great hike through three types of scenery ending in a spectacular view of the coast. We walked down to the shore and along it to a small waterfall peaking out. The hike in was medium but the hike back a little more difficult. We were also treated to a show when a sheep chased down a family if four haha! Highly recommend this hike!
