Pissing Mare Falls

DSC00020

Pissing Mare Falls are one of the many waterfalls visible from water
level at
Western Brook Pond.  These falls flow from the higher plateau south of
Western Brook Pond, originating from ponds, lakes and streams at 800
meters or more of elevation. 

Access to the falls is limited to the Western Brook Pond Ferry, a
boat tour that runs the length of the pond as part of Gros Morne
National Park.  Ferry tickets are available from Bon Tours at the OceanView Motel in Rocky Harbour or at the dock. If you have a backcountry pass and are planning to do a hike along the North Rim or Long Range Traverse (and have time to do a short excursion), you can hike around the end of Western Brook Pond to the base of the old flowage.  From there, hike and climb the large rocks toward the falls to have a great view of the falls and the length of Western Brook Pond.

To get there: Take highway 430 (Viking Trail) toward St. Anthony from
Rocky Harbour.  Park at the Western Brook Pond parking lot and hike
2.5km to the ferry dock.

One thought on “Pissing Mare Falls

  1. This boat tour is absolutely fantastic! Unbeleivable scenery, including Pissing Mare Falls. Have to say, perhaps it gets more attention due to its name, because some of the other falls in the fjord are even more picturesque.
