Trail is in CBHNP. The area at the end of the trail is where my family first settled when they came here in the 19th century.

It's designed as a backcountry hike that provides an over night opportunity. You need to reserve your campsite and permit with the wardon's office prior to staying in the area.

Directions:

CBHNP trail #9 (Cape Breton Highlands National Park)

The Wildlife. Amazing sunsets if no clouds. Downside Its not further away from the Cabot Trail (its only 6 kms from the road taking the "long" way). Comment We 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!

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. Downside It's uphill all the way back, so bring lots of water. I'd recommend being in a bit of shape and pack light! Comment Absolutely 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.
