Why Travel between Corner Brook and Grand Falls-Windsor?

This portion of the highway nudges up the northwest spine of the Island through a rugged area sprinkled with magnificent lakes, forests, and rivers.

Here is the itinerary for the 270 km along the #1 between Corner Brook and Grand Falls – Windsor, Newfoundland:

Just up the Humber River from Corner Brook is Deer Lake, which lies only 2-1/2 metres (8 feet) above sea level. This lake has a large log boom to collect logs forested further inland, which are processed at Corner Brook. As a result of its use in transporting logs, the bottom of Deer Lake is covered by “pug”, what locals call tree bark that fell off in transit, which decomposes in the lake, reducing oxygen levels. At the north end of the lake is the town of Deer Lake, which has another log chute, as well as a hydro-electric power plant, which supplies all of Western Newfoundland.

Gros Morne Lighthouse
The town of  Deer Lake marks the junction of Highway 430 up the rugged west coast of the Island, which provides access to Gros Morne National Park, which has high mountains resulting from a 300 million year ago collision of tectonic plates, with deep fjords eroded by glaciers. At the very northern end of the Island, near St Anthony and about an 11 hour drive (each way) is L’Anse aux Meadows, the first Viking settlement in North America.

L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site-Viking Sod Huts
The Sandy Lake eco-zone is nestled between the western coastal Long Range mountains and the interior mountains. The gentle terrain, and combination of dry sandy soils and bogs, with lots of sheep laurel and caribou moss used to support herds of ten thousand caribou. Sandy Lake was the release point for the first 4 moose introduced to the province back in 1904. Today there are over 125,000 across the province (1999 stats). The forests west of her tend to be balsam fir, and the forests east of Sandy Lake tend to be black spruce.

Between Springdale and South Brook, you pass Halls Bay, a 40 kilometre long fjord that flows north into Notre Dame Bay. This area is one of the top sealing areas in the world. Seal pups are born on the springtime ice sheets on the Bay, and in summertime, ice floes drift into the fjord. Just a little further east, past South Pond, the Trans-Canada takes a sharp southward bend toward Badger in the Exploits River basin.
