There is so much to say about Gros Morne National Park. We stayed 4 days and did not see it all. We did as much hiking as possible but we were there in unusually hot humid weather. Drinking water was key. Western Brook Pond was a good 45 min hike to the boat dock. There is a small food venue with washrooms at boat dock so you can plan to arrive early and rest comfortably. Pack a lunch, little tables in building available. We reserved tickets for boat online before hand and paid at boat dock when we arrived. Check weather, we had a beautiful sunny day but very windy on water so wind breaker with hoody useful. Sat on upper level of boat great view point for photos.
We were staying in Norris Point so the next 2 days we drove around to the Woody Point side of the park. It wasn't too bad, a little construction but a very beautiful drive coming into Tablelands area.
We hiked the Lookout Trail behind the Discovery Centre for the best view of the park! We also hiked the Tablelands that same day. Cooled off in the Discovery Centre and watched their short movie. Everyone very helpful there and will photocopy topic graphical maps of trails if you ask.
The next day we visited Green Point, extremely interesting archeological site. Then hiked Southeast Brook Falls an easy hike with beautiful waterfalls. Then we drove to Green Garden short hike entrance. The Discovery Centre helped us plan to hike into beach area and back only at low tide. It was our most challenging but the most amazing. Explored beach and sea cave, we could have spend a full day there enjoying the view and beach. Would highly recommend if you handle some up and down hiking. Also hiked around Lighthouse in Rocky Harbour and did a sunset boat cruise out of Norris Point, all excellent! We plan to return someday!

Breathtaking scenery. Hikes are either quite short or long -- would be nice to have some mid length hikes. The Tablelands are amazing. Be sure to visit Woody Point.

This park has to be a hidden gem. Stunning hikes and scenery. I would recommend going in late May or early June as there are very few people. We were the only people on many of our hikes and can spend hours admiring the scenery. Absolutely a must visit in Newfoundland.

Traveled to Gros Morne with two of my cousins. One sixteen year old, and one seventeen. We had an amazing time. Took the ferry from Sydney to Port aux Basques, and then drove our car up the coast to Gros Morne. The drive north alone is amazing! Four hours of interesting terrain that closely resembles a set of King Kong (the new one.)

The cousins and I really wanted a good workout so we did the Mont Gros Morne Hike. It is arduous, but doable for most people...providing you take your time. Where most trails I have been on are like very large paths, the track of the Gros Morne takes you through some dense wilderness that seems chiseled through this forest of pine. The smell of the forest is intoxicating, and every time you emerge in a new vantage point, the view of where you had come from is spectacular. The actual "climb" up the rock-fallen Gros Morne is splendid. We got on the trail at 6am, and were pleasantly surprised to find we were the first people out that day. It is definitely recommended to do this hike earlier to avoid the noon time heat while traversing up the gulley of the mountain.

In the end of the day, we were greeted by a moose, which for my New York self is not something I see every day.

All in all the park is a magical place, that isn't looted with obnoxious overly confident hiking afficionados. It is a great escape, a magical journey, and a memory I shall never forget.
