I don't know of the maps, I ride there once a year with people that know the area, I'm on the other side of the rock. Check into some info on the Lewis Hills area, awsome riding there as well as the Gros Morne area. If you go there, bring a gps as some of the hills can get confusing when you get off trail.

I have a Garman gps and have saved some tracks of Lewis Hills area and Gros Morine area {Western Brook Gorge} which will lead you in and out of those areas with ease. If one in your group has a gps I could e-mail them if you like. Also have a gps track across the Rock on rail line with gas stops, lodging.

In the Corner Brook area the Western SnoRiders sell maps see http://westernsnoriders.com/

When you purchase a trail sticker you will also receive a trail map. It does the trick but is not as detailed as a GPS route.

IN THE ABOVE ATTACHMENT YOU WILL REQUIRE THE GARMAN MAP SOURCE PROGRAM ON YOUR COMPUTER TO VIEW THE TRACKS.
YOU WILL FIND IT VERY INTERESTING IF YOU DOWN LOAD THE FREE VERSION OF GOGGLE EARTH. SEARCH FOR IT ON THE INTERNET.
THEN YOU SHOULD FIND THAT THE GOGGLE EARTH PROGRAM WILL NOW OPEN IN THE MAP SOURCE PROGRAM UNDER THE 'VIEW' MENUE, SCROLL DOWN TO YOU COME TO 'VIEW IN GOGGLE EARTH'
DOUBLE CLICK AND YOU WILL LIKE THIS. LET ME KNOW HOW YOU DO.
I POSTED THE ABOVE ATTACHMENT IN THIS FORM FOR OTHERS MIGHT LIKE IT ALSO
