This trail takes you through beautiful stands of birch that will give you amazing views of the Humber Valley and the Bay of Islands. To witness more of Mother Nature’s wonders, take a short drive to Steady Brook, home of Marble Mountain Ski Resort. Avid hikers can drop into the ski lodge and pick up a trail map to guide them up Marble Mountain. Take your camera and enjoy the stunning scenery as you make your way up the Steady Brook Falls.
While at Marble Mountain, you can participate in a thrilling adventure travel experience that will get the blood pumping as you to face your fear of heights. Dress warmly and go zip lining, where you’ll soar 280 feet over Steady Brook Falls. There is another amazing experience which draws outdoor enthusiasts here—the obstacle course. Found at the base of Marble Mountain, the Spider Challenge runs from spring to fall, and if you have the nerve it will have you climbing 50 feet in the air, walking on swaying bridges, holding onto moving ropes, and stepping on swinging tires. When you reach the top, you will witness a breathtaking spectacle, the Humber Valley in all her glorious fall colors!
About an hour’s drive from Corner Brook, you can spend the day in Bottle Cove and Lark Harbour. Here you’ll experience beautiful and breathtaking coastal scenery.
