  • Climb the stairs and enjoy the view of the ocean as you walk along the trail. you might even run into the sheep that live on top of the hill.

  • We stayed a night in trout river and stumbled upon this trail. The stairs are some work but after that it’s an easy and STUNNING trail!

  • Gros Morne National Park is known for its incredible geological diversity. There are five distinct geologic zones in the park including the world famous Tablelands and Gros Morne mountain. However...

  • Very scenic trail in Trout River. Much shorter than the Green Gardens Trail and has similar scenery. We did Tablelands, then did this trail after lunch which was just right. Park on the left before the bridge where there is space for 5 cars. Walk over the bridge, you can see the trail leads between a house and garage before you see the trail info board. A few steps before you reach the top, with several rest stops/viewpoints on the way. The trail wanders through some coastal Meadows and scrub trees with several boardwalks for the boggy bits. Eastern point offers great views of Trout River to the south and the craggy shoreline to the north. Overall, a nice trail and well worth your time!
  • A really great trail that gives you a taste of town and coastal views as well as pastures and streams and forest! Other than the stairs at the beginning it is pretty flat and easy.
  • “Mini Green Gardens”… you don’t need the 11km version and can see all of the same views in less than 2km! 145 steps on the staircase up, then an easy walk- grassy, partially boardwalk. The views are incredible.
  • Get a beautiful view on Trout River and get up the stairs. Those are actually not that bad and if you need a break there are benches so you sit down, catch a breath while enjoying the view. Once up there it’s just fantastic!!
  • Amazing views - we only had time (and legs) for this trail in Trout River and it did not disappoint. After the walk up the stairs it was smooth terrain and board walks most of the way. A babbling brook, small waterfalls off the cliffs and picturesque views of the harbour were awesome. Would recommend for all abilities due to the short distance and beautiful scenery
