“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

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!

“So foggy we couldn't see anything!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

The weather on that day was not the best for Cabot Trail - drizzling rain and gloomy, but it was our last day there and we had no choice but going throw cape smokey to Ingonish. It is quite hilly area and the fog covered it completely, I mean, forget about the view - we couldn't see anything 10 feet in front of our car!!! Passed some scary mountains turns on the top. It was an adventure!

“A good stop on the Cabot trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

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.

“good hikes, beautiful drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

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 ...
