The 298 km (185 mile) Cabot Trail winds its way past stunning ocean views, old-growth forests and fascinating geology, providing access to dozens of hiking trails and plenty of opportunities to stop in the villages of Cape Breton to enjoy local culture and a good meal.
Driving NS – Halifax to Baddeck
Our route from Halifax to Baddeck could have been a little shorter than the 400 km we drove. We ended up doing some back-tracking that could have been avoided by checking the tide tables in advance. Our two main stops were lunch at Sugar Moon Farm and witnessing the tidal bore surge on the Salmon River near Truro.
