Middle Brook Falls (Glenburnie)

DSC00084

Middle Brook Falls at Glenburnie are a dual level cascade fall  found between Wiltondale and Woody Point just outside of Gros Morne National Park.  The falls are a well known spot among locals for swimming during the hot days of summer. The falls are surrounded by steep hills and dark textured rock, adding to the location. 

To access the falls, park at the Middle Brook Cottages lot.  With permission, you can walk through the cottage grounds to the power pole past the playground.  A short trail will lead you to the south side of the bank, allowing access to the pool.  For better photos of the falls, walk across an old stone bridge and take the far bank, walking toward the falls.  The solid rock bank can be slippery, be careful reaching the falls.  Once around the slight bend, you will see a great vantage point for photos.  

To get there: Take highway 430 (Viking Trail) from Deer Lake toward Wiltondale.  At Wiltondale, take the Bonne Bay road toward Trout River and Lommond.  Just before Glenburnie, watch for the parking lot on your left.
