The Big Lookout hike is a spectacular panoramic lookout point located in the southern half of Gros Morne National Park, and just minutes from our shop in Shoal Brook. This hike take about 6-8 hours to complete depending on weather conditions and group dynamics, and giving us plenty of time to learn about the unique wildflowers and wildlife that call the big lookout trail home.
We'll follow the marked Parks Canada trail first where we climb steadily through forest, emerging from the trees onto a highland plateau. From there, your guide will lead you over the expose barren tundra, following an old fire watch trail to the summit of the Lookout Hills
Once we reach the summit, we'll sit back and enjoy the amazing views overlook Bonne Bay, the Long Range Mountains and the Tablelands while your guide recreates the 500 million year old story of Gros Morne National Park.
The Big Lookout hike in Gros Morne contains steep sections and wet boggy areas we recommend guests to have previous hiking experience and proper footwear suited to this full day hike.
