Rattling Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, with a mountain range on one side and Green Bay’s Southwest Arm on the other, is one of the prettiest places around. Nearly everyone has an unobstructed view of the bay, caplin roll up on the beach in summer and a 800ft waterfalls marks the entrance.
There is spring water available next to the community hall. It is popular with locals but, as it is untreated, it is “drink at your own risk“. The water runs seasonally, from spring thaw to November/December freeze.
A new hiking trail, the Caribou Hiking Trail was opened in Fall, 2016.
