Hiking the Starlight Lodge Trail in Western Newfoundland

 

This hike is located just off the Trans Canada Highway in the scenic Codroy Valley.  The coordinates of the trail head are 47 46.933 N and 59 13.950 W if you have a GPS. If you don't have a GPS and are coming from Corner Brook (ie from the north) then the trail head is just off a parking lot on your left that is about 5 km past the Mountainside Esso on the Trans Canada Highway. The trail is named after the Starlight Lodge which is no longer there. However the parking area is still there and the trail starts next to a small gazebo. Once on the trail it is very obvious and well marked for the first 2 km.
