Blow Me Down Mountain Trail – International Appalachian Trail

Bay of Islands

May 1 - Nov 30

Blow-Me-Down Mountain Trail crosses the Blow Me Down Ophiolite Massif west of Corner Brook. Though the southern terminus is located near the western end of Serpentine Lake via Simms Gulch, the northern terminus of this 30-40 km backcountry route can be either Benoit's Cove, Frenchman's Cove or York Harbour, all along Route 450 on the south side of the Bay of Islands. This spectacular and challenging trek crosses rust-colored peridotite from the earth's mantle and rises to a height of 650 meters.
