One of the best hikes in Cape Breton. A little off the typical Cabot Trail route people take, but a worthwhile stop. Trail took us 2 hours round trip, with a half hour stop at the top to catch our breath from the hike up and the view. Trail starts at a relatively unmarked trailhead, and you follow the hunting tape as you make your way up a creek, to the backside of the mountain. Once the incline begins, it doesn’t stop. At points towards the peak you’ll be crawling on all fours up the loose rock, with the occasional rope to help. Utilize the trees and grind it out, because it’s worth the view. There are three peaks of differing heights at the top, all offering views of the coast on the left and the highlands to the right. The way down is arguably the most dangerous and difficult part, as at times you’ll have to descend backwards to keep your footing on the loose rocks. If traveling in a party, spread out and watch out for tumbling stones. Once you’ve finished the descend it’s turns into a very simply walk in the woods back to your vehicle.
