The hunt will run from September 21, 2019 to January 26, 2020.

The Moose Management Area, which encompasses most of the park, allows for shared access. Shared access ensures that our most utilized hiking trails and facilities are available for visitor use and enjoyment, as well as hunting. Visitors and hunters must wear blaze orange when hiking trails or hunting in the park.

  • Louil Hills Trail
  • Cobblers Day Use
  • Newman Sound Campground and Coastal Trail to HQ Wharf
  • Southwest Brook Day Use Area

The following trails are open to visitors and closed to hunting until October 26, 2019 at which time they will become shared access areas (Zone 2 on map, yellow-shaded):

  • Sandy Pond Day Use Area and Trail
  • Coastal Trail (between HQ Wharf to Visitor Centre)
