"Gros Morne is a Creole word for a rounded mountain standing alone. It can also mean dismal or gloomy. Big Gloomy, considering the weather, that name fit perfectly. Gros Morne National Park sits along the western coast of the island of Newfoundland, the island half of the Province Newfoundland Labrador. The park takes the name of the highest point Gros Morne Mountain. Gros Morne offers not only spectacular views of the coast and mountains, but also an abundance of outdoor activities. The park has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its internationally significant geological features and the arctic-alpine habitat of the Long Range Mountains. Terra Nova (New land) National Park preserves 400 square kilometers of wilderness and coastline. There are about 140 km of hiking trails within the park boundaries. TCH 1 runs through the park, and there are four access roads to points of interest along the way. Being a wilderness area means roads are scarce. The boreal forest runs through the park also."
