    Fascinating walk
    I read that you can get the gist of the place by popping in and out of it. While the terrain was identical throughout the walk, it was a fascinating, other-wordly hike. It was mostly flat and easy to navigate and a good way to burn the excess fish and chips consumed. The geological significance of this place is magnificent, even if it went over my head. A must-do at Gros Morne.

    Be sure to take the tour if offered
    We went on the guided tour provided by the park service at 10:00 a.m. on certain days. Be sure to check. The guided tour helped us understand the entire process of why the earth’s mantle is exposed. I really don’t think we would have appreciated the hike on our own. The tour lasts about 1-1/2 hours, then we were left to continue the walk to the end of the maintained trail (about another ½ km). Our guides, Rebecca and Chole, were excellent—knowledgeable and friendly. You could spend several hours hiking here.

    Tablelands hike
    A highlight of our visit to Gros Morne for sure. Tablelands is a surreal, beautiful hike on the earth's mantel. Great for all levels of hikers, we hiked past the end point and the views were amazing. Highly recommend.

    A Walk on the Earth's Mantle? I'm in!
    For geology nerds and for curious people of all interests. One of 4 places on earth where you can walk on the Earth's mantle. As you will learn " it shouldn't be there" Tours are available in English and French our tour guide Marsella describes herself as an indigenous person and her love and respect for the Tablelands was evident The hike itself is probably with reach of most people,gentle rises and a old wagon road for a base. A bonus was the the absence of bugs as a result of the moonrise landscape Our trip to Gros Morne would have been less had we not stopped there

    Incredible. Don’t miss it.
    Incredible geology and flora supported by absolutely fantastic park staff. They were incredibly educated, knowledgeable, informative and engaging. The park staff made the visit with their exhibits (pulled from their backpack) and clear explanations. Thanks!

We did the walk along the route of the old road, which gave us views of the Tablelands. It was an easy walk but the guide talked a great deal so we ran out of time to get to the end of the walk. There were lots of walkers and the path was very busy. We were expecting to get much closer views, so found the whole exercise a little disappointing.

Easy hike to see some incredible things. I would recommend that you visit the interpretive center to get more information about the tablelands before you go or take the guided tour.

Great hike out to the Tablelands. Nice views, lots of good information and you get to see and touch rocks from the mantle.

We come here every year, recommend it to all visitors as a main highlight to see, it’s an easy shorter walk for families to handle (we went with 4 of our kids under 4 years old!!! Not recommended LOL but doable, to give you an idea). Beautiful area worth the drive and you can pop into the Visitors Centre nearby and beautiful shops and restaurants at the local town of Woody Point minutes away. A Must See! You can do a longer guided version as well which I hope to do someday. But otherwise it’s a shorter more simple hike with big views!

The Tablelands in Gros Morne National Park are a strange and mystical place! Unique in our world this is only one of three or four places like it to be found on Earth. The Tablelands are a geological marvel that helped scientists understand and prove the theory of plate tectonics. In this place, millions of years ago, two tectonic plates crashed together, forcing the Earth’s crust to buckle, and slide down deep upon itself, forcing part of the Earth’s mantle up over the crust. Unique geology and plant life, as well as incredible the incredible vistas make this a must-see when travelling to Newfoundland and Gros Morne Park. I recommend participating in the guided tour hosted by park staff to learn about the incredible landscape and features from an expert for a complete experience.
