It's a local watering hole. Nice, easy walk to get there and plenty of benches to sit and watch the water.

It was a 30 minute brisk walk in and a lovely small lake for swimming, glad it was end of the day and not crowded.

Very easy & brief hike to the lake, the optional climb to look down on the lake is very steep. Ropes are there to help which is nice!

My wife and I recently went on this trail when we were in Nova Scotia this summer. It was neat to climb up the rope to look over the lake and the beautiful view! Don’t forget to bring your swimwear as it is a beautiful clear lake! I swam to the other end and back but be careful of the weeds at the far end of the lake. We also saw some young people jumping off the cliff into the water but did not try that ourselves. This was one of the hidden gems of our summer holidays!

Lots of parking on a Monday. easy walk to the lake. people swim in it. We thought view was beautiful. Went up to top to see view using a rope. If in Cheticamp., worth a visit.

Nice, easy, quick hike. Lots of bugs when we were there - so be sure to bring bug spray. The lake is beautiful, but limited scenery/views other than that.

An easy hike into an old Gypsum mine that has flooded and now forms a small lake with lovely colour and reflections. Once at the lake, make the extra effort to climb the rocks above it for an even better view of the lake.

This is an easy 20 minute hike to the lake along a wide, well signed path. Then you can scramble up higher for a better view of the lake. A rope is there to help, especially on the way down.

This is such a beautiful and quick stop that it should definitely be on your road trip list! Depending on the weather when you're there, I've seen people swimming there!

Highly recommend this hike. Well marked on road, good parking, easy hike with med incline to lake & then steep climb to top for excellent views. Trail to top located on left just before lake. Rope available. Recommend good footwear. Wet areas after rainfall.
