The earths mantle usually starts around 200 km below our feet on the other side of the earths crust. Along the Tablelands trail in beautiful Gros Morne National Park, the earths mantle is visible and is a geological feature which has attracted scientists to this area the world over.
The Tablelands also attracts many tourists and the trail is a popular hike for visitors to Gros Morne National Park. The trail leads visitors into the barren looking landscape to a waterfall (and beyond). The waterfall is one of the best locations to see a fascinating geological feature that Gros Morne is famous for (among other things) - a place where the earths mantle is laying exposed on the surface. It got here by being forced up to the surface during a plate collision dating back several hundred million years ago.
