Herring Neck (aka Salt Harbour, my family refers to it as Herring Neck) is yet another picturesque community located on the NorthEast coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. It has all of the common characteristics of communities scattered along the coast; a rugged coastline, spectacular ocean sunsets, friendly people, a rich fishing history, and an incredible iceberg season from May until July.
Twillingate, also known as the land of icebergs, has a great collection of short to medium length trails. One of my favourite ones to hike is the Spiller's Cove Trail which is located on the eastern part of the island.
As you may know, I grew up on the West Coast of Newfoundland and for the first 35 years of my life, I never visited Gros Morne National Park. That all changed in the summer of 2014 when I first hiked Gros Morne Mountain. This year (2016) I did a repeat performance of Gros Morne Mountain, followed the next day by a relaxing boat tour in Western Brook Pond .
