Tablelands Brook Falls

Tablelands Brook Falls are located in an area of unique rocky terrain found in the Tablelands area of southwestern Gros Morne National Park.  The Tablelands area is composed of deep earth rock, thrust to the surface during shifting of the earth's geological plates.   The rock does not support life chemically making for similar terrain only seen above the treeline, such as in the Rocky Mountains.  The falls have several drops as they work their way down from the plateau. There is a small beaten path that you can hike along the brook towards the top of the falls.

To get there: Head to Gros Morne National Park toward Trout River on Bonne Bay Rd.  After 4 kilometres west from the Discovery Centre, a parking lot for the Tablelands area is on the south side of the road.  Park here, head along the Tablelands trail for approximately 1 kilometre and a waterfall will be visible.
