Take your family or group (of 8 people or less ) on a private trail ride through the backcountry roads and paths that weave around the Elephant’s Head Mountain and on to Gregory River. Get the eagle’s eye view from tall hilltops, spot moose footings in the sandy soil along tiny lakes and mishes almost hidden by the vast forest, examine the different types of clay and rock that can only be found here, along with carnivorous plants and camouflaged wildlife. Work your way up to an abandoned mine or explore along the barrens in hopes of spotting a caribou herd.
Maybe you would like to explore the former settlement of Chimney Cove (pronounced Chim-leeh Cove by the locals). Many years ago, families from this isolated, coastal community left their homes and moved to nearby Trout River, as part of a government funded relocation effort. Today, their descendants continue to visit the remains of the fishing huts and houses, some of whom have built cabins there for winter and summer vacation time. You will find it abundantly enjoyed by large farm cows and Newfoundland ponies, who instinctively know their way to and from Trout River very well and so are allowed to freely roam about on the grasslands and beaches near owner’s little cottages, while the weather allows.
