This Park is just beautiful. We were there in the best week for their Fall Colors. Colors were fantastic, the best we have ever seen. Ocean views everywhere - only animal we saw was a moose. Walked along one ocean front beach - about 2...More
The drive around the North end of Cape Breton and through the Highlands National Park is breathtaking. The staff are welcoming, and the roads have recently been updated. There are well marked hiking trails along this scenic route. This venue is a vista that you...More
This national park is the reason we traveled to Cape Breton Island after a reunion with friends in Lunenburg. We loved the fact that hiking trails like Mica Hill were not terribly crowded, even during our high season visit.
Majesty, splendor and stunning, are all words that come to mind when describing Cape Breton Highland National Park. The road that takes you around The Cabot Trail provides one eye-popping view after another as you careen around the curves with huge vistas of land, sea...More
From the moment we entered the park we were warmly greeted by the park staff. They were extremely helpful and offered suggestions about places to stop. The park is beautiful and immaculately maintained. There were two places with road construction but the delays were minimal....More
There is so much to see and do in the park. The scenery was beautiful especially with the vibrant fall foliage. We saw moose on two different days. Photo ops abound at the beaches and overlooks. There are hiking trails for all levels of fitness...More

We only had time to hike a couple of the trails in this spectacular park during our travels here but we thoroughly enjoyed both of them. Trails are well maintained and have pretty good signage.
Hiking the boardwalk on the Skyline Trail was an incredible...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.
