Jul 13, 2018 - Trout River, Newfoundland

July 12 Today we decided to head to Southern Gros Morne to Trout River; another recommendation from travelers we have met. This takes us into the Table Lands which hold some of the most amazing geologic features in the entire Park. The road is quite dramatic and in some places quite scary with the severe ups and downs. We visited the Discovery Center which is dedicated to the unique geological features of the surrounding land. It is hard to simplify the discoveries that were made here because of the exposed pieces of land mass. Apparently...

Jun 28, 2018 - Tablelands and Trout River

Thur., June 28th – Just when you think the scenery can’t become any more extraordinary, there’s a day trip to Tablelands and Trout River. The views along the way were amazing. There are such diverse geological sights in this unique area - from amber or slate colored barren rock formations to lush green mountains. Tablelands is a gravel path that leads to a small waterfall and an expansive view of the mountain range beyond…truly beautiful, but the winds were unrelenting at the end of the trail. I had to do the Jim Cantori hurricane stance to...

Aug 2, 2010 - Gros Morne National Park (PICS LATER)

A free day to see Gros Morne National Park! We slept a little later than normal then decided we would hike the Green Gardens trail before heading north to take a boat tour of Western Brook Pond. From what I have found on the internet, these are the two best things to do in the park. The ~ 45 minute drive south towards Trout River from the campground was beautiful. We found the trail head with no problems and took the last parking space. The first 1/2 mile of the 5.5 mile roundtrip trail was at a slight incline, the next 1.5 mile was a steep...

Sep 14, 2008 - Trout River Pond Boat Tour

We had a quiet day yesterday, but today we drove one hour North to Trout River on the South side of Gros Morne National Park. We followed the beautiful Bonne Bay on the way. Trout River is a little bit of a town and the main draw is the 2.5 hour boat tour on nearby Trout River Pond. Trout River Pond is really two ponds, connected by ‘the Narrows’ where our boat barely made it through. To call these bodies of water ponds is a little misleading as they are quite large (15 sq. km.) and very deep. The larger pond is more than 100 meters deep!...

Aug 9, 2008 - Trout Pond time travel

A boat tour unique in all the world - Saturday, August 9 We got up to another quiet campground. This Provincial Park campground is laid out in the woods with a lot of trees between the sites, and there is a real feeling of privacy and solitude here. At 8:00 we broke that solitude and started our generator to recharge our batteries, but the spaces are far enough apart that the noise was not obtrusive to our neighbors. By 9:00 we were ready to leave and we got back on Highway 1 and headed north. Out destination today is Gros Morne National...
