This is through the little town of Cheticamp where again we spent a night on the big red barn motel. Trails all over the place. Nice walking and great areas of water.

This is a fantastic drive with many view pull off areas along the road. This trip had several areas of road work that blocked some of the lookouts. But we were early in the season and the window for construction is small, so this is...More

What a great hike to do while visiting Cape Breton. I was on a Caravan Bus Tour and I didn't want to do the Whale Watching so two of us on the tour did this hike instead. It is a 7 minute drive outside of...More
