We were lucky with the weather, so we managed to do a good variety of hikes. Lots to see around here and lovely beaches.
The place indeed is very beautiful, however the people saying that the road is dangerous either must be joking or have simply never driving on a winding road. it may be dangerous to a novice driver or perhaps on a densely foggy day. its a fun easy drive.
My husband and I happened upon Cape Smokey on a beautiful sunny day in October. We stopped at the lookout, ate our lunch at one of the picnic tables provided for visitors, used the washroom facilities, and then went for a short walk along one of the trails leading to a alternate lookout point over the ocean.

Cape Smokey is one of the highest points along the shoreline of Cape Breton and the climb up the side of the mountain can leave you wondering if it will ever end. Your car will make it *lol*

We visited cape smokey on our honeymoon! We didn't hike but did stop for lunch and at most of the sight seeing spots, absolutely breathtaking!!!! Scary drive, but totally worth it! Defiantly take the newenglish ferry across saves so much time and only costs 5.50$ per car! Beautiful scenery!

Attractive stopping point on the drive. You can't miss it and it will be one of many stops you make. Others are equally attractive.
Beautiful view and a great beach not to far. Enjoy and take lots of pics. A few places to park and just enjoy your view. pack a lunch and stop along the trail.
Cape Smokey is impressive from the beaches, the middle head trail. But, take your time when driving through it, get out at the lookout points. And hike if you can .... Lovely ...
