This trail is mostly dirt road with a short section of double track to access the Lomond Sinkhole. If ridden as a loop using logging roads and the highway, the total distance is approximately 37 km.

This sinkhole is approximately 30 m deep by 45 m wide with a waterfall shooting from the top of the cliff into the bottom of the sinkhole. The water does not form a pool of water where it lands but disappears into an underground drainage system. Like most karst landscapes, a number of sinkholes can be found nearby.

Access Info

The sinkhole can be accessed off Route 430 just past Bonne Bay Big Pond. From the junction of the Trans Canada highway and Route 430, drive north approximately 25 km and turn left onto Whitewash Road. The intersection of Whitewash Road and Route 430 is a potential parking place if you plan to ride the loop. Otherwise, proceed ~6 km and turn right, continue for another ~3 km and turn right again. Continue for ~5 km before turning left, then proceed up the hill for another 2 km to the end of the road. Follow the trail until you hear the waterfall.
