Create an itinerary including Lookout Hills Trail
Winding through boreal forest and bog meadows, Lookout Hills Trail represents a moderate return loop trek that provides some of the best vistas in the whole park. When you reach the boardwalk at the summit, sit back, relax, and enjoy panoramic views over the Tablelands and Bonne Bay. The delicate wetlands on the highland plateau boast hundreds of plants and the lush green color of the bog stands in contrast with reddish rocks offering great photo opportunities.

  • Hidden Gem in Good Ole Bonne Bay! - Best views from Bottom to Top - 2.5km distance to the top. 75% uphill trek, 25% flat & boarded walkway. - Hiking shoes with in-depth tread in a mandatory - The view at the top is worth the trek! 2 red chairs at the top can be seen once starting the boarded walk. This is your indicator you’re close to the top! *Please do not litter, and respect the nature and wildlife by not stepping outside the path and not disturbing animals if seen*
  • This trail was one of my favourite hikes in recent times. We were told to allow for 1.5 hours both ways, but took about 48 mins each way including photography. We then spent some time enjoying the view.
  • Wonderful trail with a great view at the end. We enjoyed hiking and seeing the vast expanse of the area from the top vantage point.
  • A Gem in Gros Morne National Park. Amazing vistas, boardwalks and around 1100' of elevation gain along switch backs with the round trip being around 5.7km. The trail head is right at the discovery center and about 10 minutes from the Tablelands trailhead.
  • We found this trail challenging as it is a steady incline the whole way, but definitely 100% worth it. The views are incredible and the red chairs at the top are nice for a picnic. Did it in mid-October for perfect temp and coloured leaves.
