Northwest of St. Johns, the Long Range Traverse is a 22 mile hiking trek through rocky woodlands and boggy wetlands. This semicirclar route can be very difficult to follow due to numerous intersecting trails. But challenge is rewarded with waterfalls and wildlife including moose and caribou.
Start from Western Brook Pond off Highway 430 and plan to spend about 4 days on the trail, which leads to the Gros Morne Trailhead.
Overall, Long Range Traverse is the 3rd most popular hiking trail of all 5 hikes in Newfoundland.
