I run or walk this trail every time I am in Isle Aux Morts. It is beautiful and runs along the ocean. The trail is a couple Kms in total and is a definite must do!

Well maintained with good views. We went on a foggy day and couldn't see too far, but it still nice. Some of the pics from other travellers below include a lighthouse, but I think that is further along in Rose Blanche.
