Great trail. Lots of exposed roots and some steep inclines but views at the end and along the way worth it.

Really great hiking trail! The views are amazing, and getting to the end is a treasure itself! Trail was up and down cliffs, but was doable for the not in shape. Enjoy!

Volunteered during the NS Hike Summit in May and even though I am born and raised in the area, that was my first sunrise in Ingonish from that vantage point...amazing.

Really good to experience a bit of local history and imagine what it must have been like the back in the days of the pioneers.

Not too long but uniquely beautiful and challenging throughout. Hilly and rocky in parts but a real beautiful and interesting hike. Finish up and rest at one of the Keltic restaurants.
