Follow the path to scenic Snug Harbour, near the mouth of Western Brook Pond Gorge and its dramatic 650-metre cliffs. The beach at this little cove is a great place to rest or camp. From Snug Harbour a rough trail provides access to the mountain plateau and the North Rim Traverse.

Fantastic hike. Have good shoes, sandals, and gaitors. You will hike through a river, a bog, mountain terrain, and tundra. The backcountry camp is in snug harbour. Be sure to take the trail up to the North Rim. The views are stunning and you won't be disappointed. This is a difficult trail, especially after a heavy rain. The trail is not well maintained and the bog can be tough. The mud sank up to our knees in spots. The beauty makes it worth every step. Plenty of wildlife (moose, ptarmigan).
