If you go up to Cape Breton and are doing the Cabot Trail for the first time, then I would suggest this to be a must-do hike. It is not a difficult hike but the scenery is absolutely spectacular. Make sure you take the loop rather than going back the same way. We hiked the trail in a clock-wise fashion. The latter half of the trail was less traveled and more rocky. We saw a beautiful male moose with giant antlers in the last part of the trail. Highly recommended.
