Cape Breton Highlands National Park is known for its spectacular highlands and ocean scenery. Steep cliffs and deep river canyons carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean. One third of the Cabot Trail, a world-famous scenic highway, runs through the national park along the coasts and over the highlands. The cool, maritime climate and rugged landscape permit a unique blend of Acadian, Boreal and Taiga habitats, including old-growth forests of international importance.

Easy and short. Saw whales from the cliff edge :)

A must do trail. The western part of the trail overlooks the Cabot Trail Road . spectacular views. The winds increase as you go down the steps but there are areas to sit and take it all in . No dogs allowed so leave Fido home .

The Climb is well worth the Views

Great hike! We did this on a beautiful day at the end of April and there was still a lot of snow on the trail, so much that we were able to snowshoe the whole thing. Great views and had the mountain to ourselves. Saw lots of animal tracks and a couple piles of bear scat. We couldn't do the loop as the trail was snowed out still so took the fire road up and down. Highly recommend!

Nice relatively easy hike with a great payoff at the end.

Stunning views. When you think you're at the top, you're not quite there. Keep going until you get to the red chair. Absolutely worth the climb.
