I am glad that we decided to go all of the way around the Cabot Trail. We have done alot of driving on our trip - almost 1,600 miles, but this was some of the nicest scenery we have seen. We stopped at a number of local artisan shops along the route and found some lovely things--not just curios. We ate lunch at a very good restaurant on the west coast that was open despite the lateness of the season. I wish we could have spent more time here.

We spent 1 week traveling the trail. We had a new 11 week old pup and were therefore not able to do too many of the hikes but the ones we did were great. Warren lake hike is really very, very nice and the bog walk is good too. Lots of beaches that were accessible. It was October and unfortunately the leaves are just a little late this year but we got a hint of the colour to come. All trails and picnic areas that we did use we clean and well maintained. Park staff were extremely friendly and helpful at both ends of the trial. We should be proud of our parks as they really are a wonderful resource.

The drive is exciting, the views are spectacular. A lot of great photo opportunities. I recommend that you do buy a pass through the Highlands park as you will want to stop just to see.

My husband and I cycled around te Cabot Trail and we loved every minute of this adventure! Definitely recommend this area as a cyclist's paradise. A difficult area to cycle due to the few steep hills but gorgeous and we loved every minute!
