Canada’s Best Parks

Explore - Canada's Outdoor Magazine

The June edition of  Explore Magazine has a great article of Canada’s Best of our Parks – National and Provincial. Two parks from Atlantic Canada made the list – Cape Breton Highlands National Park and Gros Morne National Park. Two of my favorite places to hike.

 A few surprises in the article written by Ryan Stewart. One in Gros Morne – Ryan indicated the Lookout Trail that takes you to top of Partridgeberry Hills offers best viewpoint. I would have thought on top of James Callaghan Trail. You see that view featured on many of Newfoundland and Labrador TV commercials.  I will definitely check that out the Lookout Trail the next time I visited Gros Morne.  Franey Trail was rated best summit of  Cape Breton Highlands National Park.  No surprise there as Hike the Highlands Festival considers it one of the classics. But the writer does indicated that on the way down visit Mary Ann Falls for a swim. There is an error there – Mary Ann Falls is not on the Franey Trail.  Otherwise,  I really like the article and it provides some great ideas and tips to visit other parks across Canada.
