Why take a walk to another waterfall or to the top of another mountain when you can enjoy a wonderful walk along the coastline to a lookout over the Keltic Lodge and Middle Head trail? This under-publicized park and trail are much better than many of the other so called hikes listed in the tourist information, which are really no... 更多
Compared to other parks, trails and views located on the Cabot Trail, as well as other locations in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, I found this park to be less than average. Rather than spending your time stopping & hiking here, I would go on around the Cabot Trail to the section between Skyline Trail and Cheticamp.
We stumbled upon this small park after climbing a steep road. We were looking for a place to stop and take photos. This was a good spot. There's also toilets if you need them. It's not much by itself. But the view!
This rugged trail runs for 5 km; it's more rocky than smooth, and in mid-May we encountered some wet sections. The first 40 minutes were through a pretty, wooded area, with the trail sloping downhill, then climbing the headland. Here the trail runs closer to the cliffs and there are good views and outlooks (the trail is set back far... 更多
A long, narrow, twisty, turny mountain drive.....kind of scary but the views from it are astounding! The scenery is second to none coming back down. Super scary drive in the winter!!
This park is located on the Cabot Trail on the Ingonish side. Before you reach the park, you have to drive up a steep section of the trail. The views are quite impressive of the surrounding area and the Atlantic Ocean. This park does have several picnic tables, and if my memory serves me right, portable toilets. There is a... 更多
Traveling counter clockwise after crossing the short ferry ride from Sydney, NS, we began our trek up Cape Smokey. Never have we witnessed such breathtaking natural beauty! Fall travel is a must here. The colors and fresh mountain air will leave you breathless with awe.
This park is located right on top of one of Cape Breton's highest mountains along the Cabot Trail so the views are quite nice. Its a great place to stop for a rest, to have a picnic or to watch whales as they are often spotted offshore. There are washrooms in the park and a number of picnic tables and... 更多
A fairly rough trail in places and quite overgrown but well worth the trek for the views over Ingonish Bay at the end.
Landed in North Sydney and headed directly to the Cabot Trail. Enjoyed an afternoon hike along the coast with some incredible views. Allow 3 to 4 hours for pictures and picking blueberries if in season.
