Trout River, Newfoundland and Labrador

Hike Green Gardens

3.4 Miles Total - 459.3 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Nicole Cote

This hike boasts of Newfoundland's beautiful shorelines, and even a few sheep.

The star of this hike is where the cliffs meet the ocean. Starting at the parking lot, find the trailhead and start hiking. As the hike is an out-and-back trail, so it is a straight-forward hike. After the first ascent, there is a bench and a map; Make sure from this area you take the trail to the left (marked green gardens) and avoid the other (currently closed - summer 2017). Once you reach the shoreline, there are two options: first, you can descend down the staircase, walk along the beach and explore the little waterfall, or option two you can continue down the shoreline and explore the cliffs.

Along the shorelines some farmers still let their sheep range free, if you get lucky you may just spot some!
