Travel along old historic logging trails through some of the most scenic areas of Gros Morne National Park. With dramatic cliffs and unique endangered flora and fauna. This exciting but simple route will take you on a journey to the isolated settlement of Chimney Cove. Take a stroll through the past as you explore an abandoned fishing village, and consider Newfoundland’s close connection with the sea.

If you park at the Trout River Campground the return trip is approximately 27 km. Parking at the Trout River Pond lot will make the ride closer to 32 km.
