We came here to hike. We didn't really know what to expect, but every day brought fresh delights; each day was more wonderful than the last, and Cape Breton will stand out forever as one of the most amazing places we've ever been.
What a beautiful area to explore and spend a few days.
Stunning scenery, lovely lakes to swim in, great views overlooking the sea and lovely little places to stay and relax.
Sea food fantastic and very friendly people....
A very nice drive, lovely scenic drive and great trail hikes.
The Skyline hike was one of the most surprising and spectacular. If you go there don’t miss it. Suitable for most abilities., all be it down hill going and uphill coming back. Having said...More
Leaving our perfect campground(MacLeod's Beach Camping, Dunvegan), we drove north through pretty, friendly, quaint villages to enter Cape Breton Highlands National Park. To start with: very affordable and friendly, helpful registration staff- and a very large, clean bathroom!
We stayed on the auto trail, with...More
Awesome views of mountains and strait and gulf. Surprised that most scenic views are along eastern side just a few kilometres from park entrance at Cheticamp. Take the skyline travel as your last stop in the park. Take advantage of the road stops as there...More
We spent the day driving and hiking in the park. There were many places to pull over to admire the view. It was a beautiful sunny and windy day. My third time lucky as Fog and rain were the order of the day on my...More
Each trail is in perfect shape and the people staffing the information centres are extremely knowledgeable. The sights vary from boreal forest to streams to lush moss on huge granite rocks. It would take many more visits to see everything. The road around the park...More
It was a bit windy but otherwise nice. We saw a few showers but no moose. The scenery is breathtaking and more than I expected. The highs were high and almost touched the clouds. The road was being repaired in a few places but passable...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.
