The Gorge Trail is part of the upper Corner Brook Stream trail network. It starts as rocky and rooty descent to the Corner Brook stream, then becomes fairly rolling with technical slow rooty sections. It's a fun trail to test your slow speed agility and technical abilities.

Access Info

From the TCH, travel in the 3 Mile Dam road towards The Walking Trail. Cross over the first bridge and continue along the pipeline until you come to a section with stairs going over the pipeline on your right. Carry your bike over the stairs, and the trail starts at a lookout. It ends at the intersection of Ginger Route.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
