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.
