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 … Continue reading Tablelands Brook Falls

Southeast Brook Falls

Southeast Brook Falls are one of two official waterfall trails in Gros Morne National Park.  Southeast brook falls cascade and drop over distinctively familiar rock, almost 30 metres from the top.  Unfortunately, there is very little view of the entire fall, as the trail only leads to the top.  A trecherous path leads to a rocky outcrop halfway down the slide, but unless the visitor is confortable with climbing using roots and rocks, it is not recommended. To get there: Head along Hwy 430 (Viking Trail) toward Rocky Harbour from the park entrance.  The trailhead is nine kilometres from Wiltondale.  … Continue reading Southeast Brook Falls
