We did the trail at Tablelands on our own as part of a Geocaching Earthcache. In retrospect we should have stopped at the visitors center before (and not after) our trek - and in reading other reviews, it would have been nice to have taken in a guided tour as well. The parking area was amazingly full considering the time... More

Our first introduction to the Tablelands was from the back via the Trout River Pond trail. The hike required several river fords (likely a result of the large rain accumulations in the previous days) but other than that was not very difficult. I completed it in rain boots while my boyfriend was wearing hiking boots (which he seriously regretted after... More

Park in the lot and hike the trail across the Tablelands where the earth's mantle is visible, a rare opportunity making this location a World Heritage site. The wind can be brutal. We were there in October and really appreciated a warm layer, and hat and gloves, even on a sunny day. There is an interpretive center on the drive... More

We were lucky with a mild weather and no wind. Great walk, great sights. This landscape dwarfs and humbles you. Highly recommended, not too difficult walk.

This was an incredible hike. The tablets were unavailable the day we went. Fortunately we had an I phone to download the app with the guided tour. An absolute must see! Loved it.

Park in the parking lot and follow the trail through the Tablelands. The contrast in this area compared to the other parts of Gros Morne park is lovely. The trail ends with a boardwalk and lookout platform. It was very windy at the end of the trail the day we were there but I don't know if this is always... More

We had no plans to do any hiking here and anyway it was foggy and rainy so we weren't sure what we were going to see but definitely worth the visit even if only to walk on the short loop trail not far from the parking lot. It looks like Mars, red rocks and gravel, like nothing else we had... More

Enjoyed the hike. Amazing scenery! Very windy day and once we got to the end of the trail we could barely stand up. Still a hike worth doing!!

An easy 2km walk in and 2km walk out on the trail. It's amazing to see the stark difference between the greens and blues of the rest of the national park vs. the orange and brown here. It feels like a completely different area of the world. Nonetheless, some parts of the trail get REALLY windy (probably because the shape... More

It's solidified, of course. The trail, which leads up to a small waterfall, offers amazing views of this formation which geologists believe was forced up from the earth's mantle. The rock, peridotite, does not support plant life and the contrast to the area just across the highway is startling. The trail to the waterfall is fairly easy but you should... More
