A Local’s Guide to November in Newfoundland

The fall weather has firmly settled on Western Newfoundland - it’s a bit darker and a bit cooler and (this year only?!) a bit less wet than usual BUT there is still lots of fun outdoor things to be doing. Here is your Local's Guide to November in Newfoundland and all the fun things you can do in the mud, rain and dark!

Mountain Biking

Hit the trails or woods roads on two wheels this month and enjoy getting' that mud splattered everywhere!

  • Group rides every Tuesday evening (weather permitting). Full details: Cycle Solutions
  • Go on your own or grab some buddies! All local trails seem to be listed on Trailforks.com with maps, ratings and such to help you get out there and ride!

Wet feet and muddy boots and a skiff of snow - what more can you ask for!

All trails are still open and ready for you to explore. Be sure to go prepared with all your day hiking necessities plus add a headlamp or flashlight because now it's dark early. The Newfoundland moose hunt is still in full swing, so please read my tips for How To: Hike Safely During Hunting Season post to ensure you are visible and also not disturbing hunters. 

Hiking Resources


Cool weather is great for running (and getting ready for ski season)! Go early and watch the sun rise or get out as soon as work or school is out. We have lots of great trails to run too - Ginger Route or any of the trails from the mountain biking section are super fun!

Wanna participate in a community event? Join the Run to Remember in honour of Remembrance Day, Nov 11. Both 11km and 5km route options. Full details: Corner Brook Running Club


The Corner Brook caves are just two kilometers west of Corner Brook.  It’s always wet and dark in the caves, so it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing! To explore the caves a guide is highly recommended.

More Outdoor Resources to Help You #GetOutside this November!

For any fall outdoor activities simply dress for the weather, take your essentials and get out on the go! Once you’re moving, you will think that nor’easter is a refreshing breeze and the drizzle will be little more than a IG filter through which to enjoy the scenery;)

I look forward to seeing your adventures on Instagram! @outdoorsonthego
