A wonderful outdoor adventure, this tour features two leisurely walks through the nearby woods where views include a cascading waterfall, meandering stream and open parkland.
Boarding your school bus at the pier, it's a brief drive to the scenic Corner Brook Stream trail system, where you will have the pleasure of hiking its serene paths, parts of which wind through the city. The first trail follows the stream itself, which eventually flows into the bay. Along the way, look for songbirds warbling in the trees, wildflowers blanketing the forest floor, and clusters of ripe berries in the bushes. To enhance the experience and take full advantage of the ever-changing topography, there are pedestrian bridges, staircases and platforms that offer dramatic views of the countryside.
At the end of that trail, you'll next be shuttled to the Glynmill Inn Trail, much of which also runs parallel to Corner Brook Stream and Glynmill Inn Pond. Mill workers originally constructed the pond as a dam to supply power to the city's paper industry. It now serves as one of Corner Brook's most popular recreation areas because of its scenic beauty. Built in 1923, the historic Glynmill Inn overlooks the pond and swans frequently congregate here.
Following your second hike, you'll stop at a local café for a tasty treat made with Newfoundland berries before driving back to the pier where your tour concludes.
Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate to strenuous hiking and includes some uneven and natural surfaces as well as steps and the possibility of staircases. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate layered clothing and flat, sturdy hiking shoes are suggested.
