Hiking In Newfoundland’s Rugged Gros Morne Highlands


If all goes according to plan, I will be starting the first (and hardest) day of the Long Range Traverse Trail in Gros Morne Park on the west coast of Newfoundland. The hike begins at the eastern end of Western Brook Pond, a stunning inland fjord. After being dropped off by boat and spending the night at a campsite near the dock, we (my husband and I and two friends) should be climbing the four kilometres uphill. The rest of the 3 – 4 days is less climbing but still challenging to navigate, we hear. I’m hoping we will meet some woodland caribou on our trek, as we will be passing through their territory. If we do, rest assured pictures will be posted here. Here’s a glimpse of what I could be doing right now:
