When asked what one should do in Cape Breton, the Cabot Trail is always at the top of the list! However, what else can we tell you about the Cabot Trail besides exactly how pretty it is? We can describe the beautiful scenery, rugged trails, and the sandy beaches, but let’s be honest... you can't really appreciate the vastness of the Cabot Trail without experiencing it for yourself.
What is the best way to describe The Cabot Trail? It's a feeling and it affects everyone differently. For some of us it's pulling over at one of the many look off points, to take in the canyons of what seems like never ending boreal forests. It can bring you out of the city you may live in, and just let you enjoy nature, making you feel refreshed. Perhaps you’ll be one of the lucky ones to see a pod of whales playing out in the ocean. There is something so serene about being able to watch wildlife in their natural environment without disrupting them. Maybe you’re a hiker and are looking to fulfill a sense of accomplishment by tackling one of the many hikes The Cabot Trail has to offer. Regardless, if you’re looking to refresh your mind, feel at one with nature or check off something off your bucket list, the Cabot Trail is one amazing place to do it. We believe everyone should experience The Cabot Trail at least once.
