Driving in Newfoundland is seeing a lot of wilderness. Here you really have a piece of wilderness of the wilderness... A pleasant short encounter with unspoiled nature. The view towards Raleigh is also charming

This is a very cool place, kind of like being in the middle of nowhere. You can drive all of the way to the end and then hike around the various spots to observe the plants and formations.

We parked at the edge of the reserve although a 4X4 can drive onto the reserve. A windy barren land with great views from the top. In September there were not many birds.

What everyone else said. Beautiful and unique. Saw a couple of icebergs in the distance. I wanted to comment on the driving though. We had a Ford Fusion rental car. The gravel road is in very bad shape in the beginning so we turned back....More

The north shore of the Reserve is absolutely stunning, with a huge sea cave, limestone shelf, and gravelly hills covered with low northern ground cover where anything grows.
