Wow, what can we say about this place except it is spectacular. We drove as many roads as we could and explored as many places as we could. I took an incredible number of photos but tried to cull it down to a bare minimum. We had perfect weather and a lovely time.

Here’s a recap of Cape Breton Highlands National Park!

We drove the trail multiple times in different directions just due to where we were camping. This means we were back and forth and had ample opporunities to explore the areas.


We drove not only the Cabot Trail but some of the side roads which would take us off the beaten track some. We also went into towns to explore.


We thought some of the most beautiful scenery was the Coastal Trail betweeen South Harbour and Neil’s Harbour via White Point and also the road to Bay St Lawrence and Capstick. We did not drive to Meat Cove.


One of the best things about the trail was that we were usually the only ones on it. That is perfect!
