Hike the Humber Valley Trail

One of West Coast Newfoundland’s most breathtaking views. This local favorite is a rite of passage for any Corner Brook native, with its challenging terrain and rewarding vista at the end.

Half-Day and Full Day options are available. The Humber Valley Trail follows along the hilltops above the north side of the lower Humber River Valley. For the day hike we will make our start at Ballam Bridge and to end we will be descending into Humber Village travelling approximately 17km in total for the day hike (approximately 7hours). The half day hike (approximately 3hours) will start and end at Ballam Bridge. This round trip will take us to the top of the ‘Old Man in the Mountain’ and back, for a distance of approximately 5.5km.

The trail begins with a 2.5km (1.5mile), 300m (985ft) ascent to the top of the ‘Old Man in the Mountain,’ offering a breathtaking view overlooking Shellbird Island in the fast flow of the Humber River. The city of Corner Brook and the Humber Arm are laid out below and to the northwest. Following the ridge the trail offers panoramic views of Western Newfoundland, from the far end of Deer Lake to the east, Blow-Me-Down Mountains to the west, North Arm Hills to the north, and Marble Mountain Ski Resort to the south.

Views from the Humber Valley Trail are particularly breathtaking in autumn when the brilliant colors of changing leaves intermingle with the coniferous greens. In summer hikers will discover the beautiful wild orchids, such as the pink lady slipper. In winter the snow covered hills will show the movements of local wildlife from as small as rabbits to as large as moose.

You’ll meet with your guide at cycle solutions fifteen minutes prior to tour to handle paperwork and last minute questions. 8.45am for a 9am start for day trip. Times will vary for our half day trip.

This is a back country hike and you will need to hydrate. Weather in Western Newfoundland is often unpredictable and may change hourly! Be prepared for rain, wind, fog, snow and sunshine! Keep in mind your personal hydration needs and bring along a small back pack with some handy day trip supplies!

  • Water & snacks
  • Personal medical needs (ie. Insulin and/or an Eppi-pen)
  • A light rain coat / an extra layer / space to store a layer as we warm up during the hike!
  • A camera
