My mom and I are going on a trip to NL and she found The Spout online and is determined to get there. HOWEVER we do not have the time or equipment to make a 23 km hike. I was wondering if there was in fact access to " Deadman's Path" from Fort Amherst. As I've been hearing a lot of people saying that some of that area is chained off now. I'm really hopeful there is as that would bring our hike from 23 kms to just under 2!!
