Tablelands Off-Trail Hike

TABLELANDS

hike

Reach for the top as you tour the Tablelands with a moderate to challenging 4-5 hour off-trail hike up the North side of the Tablelands. Explore this bizarre and beautiful landscape, the glacially carved valleys and the unique plants and vegetation that call the Tablelands their home. We will climb to the top of the 600m lookout that rises above Bonne Bay like a red giant, dominating the landscape and providing visitors with unobstructed views of Winterhouse Brook Canyon, The Bonne Bay fjords and Gros Morne Mountain.

Listen and learn as our guides will construct the 500 million year old scene that caused this extremely rare example of the earth’s mantle to be exposed. We’ll explore the isolated pockets of serpentine barrens that give rise to a full community of dwarf arctic alpine plant species, some hundreds of years old and normally found much further north.  View the breathtaking geological features that provided the foundation for Gros Morne’s UNESCO designation.
