So we went hiking after several days of rain, so the trail was quite muddy. However, the staff were actively trying to reroute hikers to more solid ground. The beginning is a little steep but the top has lots of wood boardwalks to ease the...More

Its a steady 2.5km up to the top but worth it. The views are stunning and rival those from Gros Morne summit. There are two red adirondack chairs, and some additional seating, to relax in once you get to the top. Great place to have...More

This 5 km return trail offers excellent views at the top. It took us about 45 min to go up and 40 minutes to come down and we are reasonably in shape. It is a bit exhausting on the hike upward. We did it on...More

With determination I did it! It was a tough trail for myself, I’m overweight but the day was cool and a bit drizzly. Took us almost the 3 hours with lots of stops for me to catch my breath. Heart was pumping and could be...More

The view from the top is breathtaking. But oh boy do you have to earn it. We went on a pretty hot day with no wind, but hungry bugs in the forest, and up, up, up for a good hour. We were completely wet, like...More

A short, steep climb but well worth it for the views from the top. I've hiked many National Parks in North America and seen many views (including the Grand Canyon). But I can't think of any view more beautiful than that from the top of...More

This little trail is easily accessed from the parking lot of the Woody Point Discovery Centre. But easy ends there! Don't get me wrong - it's beautiful and the views are spectacular - but it's one steep climb! Make sure to pause at the red...More

We did this hike on a cloudy day, so we were not sure about the views. But weather in Gros Morne changes very frequently and by the time we reached the top it was bright and sunny and we were able to see great views....More

We REALLY loved the views at the top of this hike, and a big bonus were the red resting chairs at the top. Perfect place to take a breather after an hour of elevation change and tricky trail manuvering. I would really like to see...More

Did the hike today. The trail is kind of washed out but take your time and you will love the payoff. The one I would recommend would be once you get to the split to the top, take the stairs up. This way your circle...More

I'm not sure where the ferry drop off is! But the hike is 5km and estimated 2/3 hours based on who hikes! I'd avoid hiking during the hottest times of day, and pack lots of water! I wouldn't hike to late incase it did get... More

Hi, I think you sent this request to me in error. The question was to be about the Look off trail, yet you are inquiring about accommodations. My stay in Gros More was in an RV.
