Experience Ingonish

(#14 Cape Breton Highlands National Park)


Wind your way along the headlands and coves of the Atlantic coast.

Feel the salty spray on your face, smell the seaweed and listen to the ‘screech’ of seagulls as you hug the Atlantic coastline. But that’s not all; you get to experience coastal meadows, granite headlands and cobblestone beaches. You can return by the same trail or go back along the Cabot Trail.

Caution: The footing is somewhat difficult on the sections of the trail over the cobblestones.
