Stunning cliff top views and easy forest paths. Mostly solid terrain with a couple rockier rough patches, many small hills. Very windy!

Agree with all the other reviews - great trail, spectacular views. My second favourite walk in the Cape Breton park!

An easy trail with great views. The trail can be quite busy as it is close to the park entrance. Even so, there are sections where you will still experience the “alone in the wilderness” vibe. The trail is mostly flat with a few inclines and declines. I wore hiking boots but you could easily do it in sneakers or birkenstocks and you would be fine.

Great trail. Relatively easy.

Fun hike through forests and around the point which opens up to a great sea view. Be sure to take the wide loop upon return to get a break from other hikers.

Absolutely amazing!!!

This will become one of the premier hikes in the park!

We can not explain how surprised and amazed we were when we reached the summit. The trail is in the process of some major improvements. The original trail was probably a road (from a hundred years ago) straight and boring. The new trail is full of twists and turns, some viewing areas and crushed granite has been added to about half of the trail. The last half is a bit more rustic and just as enjoyable (and looks like it will receive the same upgrade soon).

We found a TON of blueberries that were super yummy! We enjoyed the creeks that all have nice new bridges. We were the only people on the trail which was an amazing way to connect with nature and, we saw tons of moose tracks.

The cache container is new and in perfect condition.

Thank you for this amazing adventure!!

Wonderful trail with steep rugged sections and some narrow sections. fantastic view at the end.

Nice quick trail at end of day. We completed this one after a late dinner to work off my large fish and chip plate.

Nice trail with many ocean look out points. There are a few places to go down to the water. A lot of bugs, bring bug spray. The Keltic lodge nearby also has good ocean view.

You can actually drive this part of the trail if you are so inclined. Park at the lot and walk the path behind the gate. It leads to a beautiful lake on the plateau and you can continue down the path after visiting the lake to go to Mica Hill. Breathtaking views all around you and you probably will only see a few other hikers. Just be cautious of the weather as you do not want to be on the plateau when a lightning storm rolls through. There also seemed to be some evidence of bears and moose.

So pretty. Lots of little offshoot paths for great photo ops.
