This is outside of the national park but worth the trip past Neil's Harbor. Parking is very limited and there is a working harbor below so it is important to be respectful of those who live and work there. It is only a very short...More

We found this trail in a guidebook and boy were we glad! This place was absolutely spectacular! This trail beats the Skyline Trail. This was definitely the highlight of our trip.

A hidden gem found on the northerly tip of Cape Breton, White Point consists of open, rugged trails that overlook the Atlantic Ocean. Fairly easy to find, with limited parking, this was our favourite hiking trail during our two days on Cape Breton. Caution is...More

A neighbor of our last campground encouraged us to see the White Point. It was amazing! We parked our car next to the harbor. It was well protected by the many rocks. We walked by foot to see this splendor. It was wild, the wind...More

We did the Coastal Loop to see White Point and to get away from the nightmarish construction on Cabot Trail. It's a great, quick hike to the top of the point where the best views are. You can keep hiking out to the point, but...More

We drove the entire Cabot Trail and this was our favourite hike. It's not actually on Cabot Trail, take the turn off at Neil's Harbour. Amazing views, a cemetery for the Unknown Sailor, a MUST for anyone visiting Cape Breton
