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.

great hike, worth every step

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.

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

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!

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!

Views at the shoreline are spectacular and it's nice to be able to head down to the water. Don't be surprised if you meet a herd of sheep in the meadows. Really lovely. Downside is you see the road for the first bit of the hike. Distance calculations are a bit weird. It can be anywhere from 9km to double that if you do the loop. We went in July 2017 and a section of the seaside trail and all of Wallace Brook trail were closed. Still worth it.

Beautiful trail which leads you to a breathtaking shoreline! There are quite a bit of stairs to climb so I was surprised to see it listed as easy; moderate is more appropriate. Take water on a hot day and a hiking stick. We went when it was very foggy but it cleared up at the end!
