The Cabot Trail is a drive that is an absolute "must do" if in Nova Scotia. In a days drive (minimum) you'll circumnavigate the Highlands National Park - but get out of the car and do some of the hikes, there are amazing things to...More
This was an interesting day's drive with stunning mountain/coastal views although I'm rather jealous of one of the previous reviewers who saw lots of wildlife. We saw birds but not mammals. We were also there in summer and I can only presume that it's more...More
We enjoyed our visit to this beautiful park. It’s well worth the time . My only complaint is that it’s difficult to see it all since it’s so big. The places to stay for the most part are at either end, so you have to...More
Beautiful drive but wish there were more viewing places on the Atlantic Ocean side of the trail. Make sure you check the weather as it was very foggy on the Gulf of St. Lawrence side of the trail making visibility very bad. Fall is a...More
We went counter clockwise, as during the morning the sun coming off the ocean lit up the hillsides. Then during the afternoon, we got the same treatment, fabulous vistas.
We enjoyed the wildlife, moose, lots of deer, coyotes, bald eagles, a fox and ruffed grouse....More
I took my vacation for the sole purpose of visiting this park. I have no regrets. The park was amazing, great hikes, beautiful waterfalls, and an amazing drive. There is a park entrance fee, but you can tell they use the fee to keep up...More

Ellen, The best thing to do is to talk with the rangers. But, try White’s Point. Not technically in the park. You could pack a lunch and walk out to the very end and back of White’s Point or less distance. Beautiful scenery... More
Ellen, The best thing to do is to talk with the rangers. But, try White’s Point. Not technically in the park. You could pack a lunch and walk out to the very end and back of White’s Point or less distance. Beautiful scenery. Nice rocks to sit on. Also consider walking the grounds of Gampo Abbey, in Pleasant Bay, also outside of the park, as long as your dog is quiet. Short 15 min walk down to Mary Ann Falls if your dog can do stairs. Also you all can take a dip. Wear your suits.
