A Magnificent 4.5-Star Destination Along Cape Breton's Cabot Trail

Favourite Spots for active people


Middle Head Peninsula Hiking Trail

A fantastic Walk high above the ocean shore. Easy level (except the big hill on the way back – but there are benches!) The view from the end – it’s like standing in the middle of the Ocean without leaving land! You can do the hike in an hour and a half.

The Skyline Trail

Perhaps the top hiking Trail in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Three hours round trip allows you a breath taking view from the boardwalk and the end of the trail. Depending on the weather you might chance upon a moose munching away beside the path!

White Point (Near Neil’s harbour)

Off the Cabot Trail – take the Alternate Scenic Route at Neil’s harbour staying to the right. Beautiful boats and a small village and then just rugged coast line. Take the turn off to White Point and pull into the makeshift gravel parking lot. Take a walk along the rocky hills that over look Aspy Bay – incredible views. There is a hiking trail there for the adventurer. I just like to watch the birds and the play of water and sun.

Whale Cove Look-off

My other favourite spot is again off the Cabot Trail at Whale Cove – just below Margaree Harbour. While travelling the Cabot Trail south of Belle Cote take a turn onto the road beside the Duck Cove Motel and head to Whale Cove. On your left you will pass an old holiday village and to your right up on a hill you will see a Cemetery and bluff. That is where you are heading. Look for a small wooden cemetery sign on your right beside a dirt road. Turn onto the dirt road and follow it up onto the bluff. Amazing view…
