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

Beautiful views and access to the sea make this hike a must-do for anyone looking for a quick hike while staying near Rocky Harbour in Gros Morne

Amazing trail!!!

Absolutely enchanting! Head the weather warning sign at trailhead; hiked in early September and the weather turned quite quickly to thick fog, driving rains, and high winds (~40 mph) at the summit. Visibility was low, but fluorescent trail markers were helpful. Ascent is straight up scree. Wild blueberries, moose, and stunning fjords were worth the effort.

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

We went inside inside the valley and it was like walking on another planet...

Spectacular! The effort is strongly rewarded!

The view is amazing all around

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.

The Tablelands are an UNESCO world heritage site. It is a beautiful and unique place! Hikers are permitted to adventure off the main trail and navigate their own trail up or around the mountains using a park provided map of the area. I highly recommend this option for experienced hikers only. As the top of the Tablelands is 719m and the terrain is mostly loose rock. But the ascent to the top of the Tablelands is completely worth the work!

Beautiful hike. We were up and down in just over 5 hours - didn't rest much at the top because it was chilly and started to rain. Amazing views, especially of 10 mile pond on the back side. Saw a moose and a rock ptarmigan. We wore running shoes - something more substantial would be more comfortable. Lots of rocky terrain. Highly recommended - loved this hike start to finish!

Short hike, beautiful views, windy up top!

Very worth it! Took us 7 hours to complete it, exactly 3.5 to reach the summit and 3.5 to loop around and descend. You get a great view before you come down the backside of the mountain and a great view as you climb. The steep loose boulders at the beginning of the climb is not as tough as you would think and most people in my group found that part the easiest of the hike. It is the descent that is the most difficult I found.

Don't be discouraged at the elevation! When you make it through the few brutal miles, you will likely be above the clouds...simply spectacular!

Stunning trail! We were lucky to get sunny weather the whole time. Incredible views. Part of the hike through scree and snow before hitting a false summit and then the true summit (really more of a flat area). The whole trail has interesting things to see, and don't miss out on the fresh spring water at the small lake/pond on the backside of the mountain coming down.

Amazing trail. Sometimes when you get to the top, you are above the clouds

Very tough and long. Lots of loose rock to climb up. Great views at the top though. Make sure to bring lots of water and layers.
