UpsideThe view. The Wildlife. Amazing sunsets if no clouds. DownsideIts not further away from the Cabot Trail (its only 6 kms from the road taking the "long" way). CommentWe took the "long" way down and the shorter distance trail on the way out. Next time I do it I would definitely bring some fishing line and hooks to catch a few brookies to fry up! We saw 4 Moose including two Bull Moose so careful during the rut. Have Fun!

UpsideOpportunities to fish. The end opens up into a beautiful field with a panoramic view of the ocean. Sun set at Fishing Cove is absolutely amazing. We saw a few bear tracks, but didn't encounter any wildlife. DownsideIt's uphill all the way back, so bring lots of water. I'd recommend being in a bit of shape and pack light! CommentAbsolutely beautiful. I did this trail as a kid with my parents, but be wary - I got very tired, so I wouldn't recommend doing with kids just for that reason.
From what I remember, it was all down hill on the way in and all up hill on the way back. The sheer cliffs on one side at the beginning of the trail could give many people a case of vertigo, but the trail is well marked and as you walk, the cliffs become less daunting.
We only met with one other hiker when we were there, so it's definitely a serene, quiet trail!
Definitely a must-see trail. The best way to do this trail is to take in camping gear and stay a night or two at the midway point. I'd recommend leaving earlier in the day just so you can get your camping gear up in time to relax and see the sun set. It's absolutely breathtaking.
