Go! Hike the trails!! Stop by the information desk first ... the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. We hiked the trail next to the famous Keltic Inn. East to moderate hike. Highly recommend.

This park, along with Jasper and Banff are the nicest places to visit in Canada in my opinion. The views are amazing.

You go up and down hills, around curves and have pull out overlooks. We were fortunate to have a sunny day. The western side of the Cape is not as picturesque as the eastern. We did turn off several times to a beach. Saw golf...More

Even if you do nothing else, hike the skyline trail. Plan ahead- few places to get water, food, etc especially in the off-season.
