Corner Brook Stream woods (Jun 26, 2006 - Jul 01, 2006)
Corner Brook Stream woods (NLCBCBSW) Corner Brook, NF (CAN) Lat,Long: 48.93873,-57.92689 Map Elevation: 400 feet 36 species 3 trips (0 non-trip sightings)
Corner Brook stream drainage from Margaret Bowater park up to Corner Brook Pond, from which the penstock pipeline descends 1.8 miles and 600' to the Deer Lake Power powerplant just above the park. Despite being less than a mile from downtown, the area feels like remote woods. Well-maintained trails follow the stream up from the park, meandering through mostly second-growth mixed woods. White birch, balsam fir and black spruce are the dominant trees but red maple is also fairly common along with occasional larch and weather-beaten white pine. Just below the power plant Watson Brook joins Corner Brook, descending through a shallow gorge from an area of open spruce with boggy and brushy understory. Part of that area burned a few years ago; the scattered red maples and forbs have returned with blueberries and other shrubs getting started as well. Other trails, less distinct, run up through the spruce area from the college, and follow the powerlines which cross the brooks in several places. Bushwhacking is possible in most areas. A gravel road runs down the wide cut made for the pipeline.
