The fabled scenery of Cape Breton includes fabulous waterfalls waiting to be discovered by hikers and explorers of almost all abilities.
If hiking is your passion with a waterfall at the end as your prize, take the Cabot Trail through St. Ann’s to North River. The moderate-to-difficult 18-km (11-mi.) hike, round trip, is well worth the effort when you arrive at the 33-metre (100-ft.) waterfalls. It’s about a six-hour hike.
Less experienced hikers can proceed directly to Baddeck Forks and the trail to Uisge Bahn Falls. A moderate 4-km (2.5-mi.) hike though hardwood forest leads to these 16-metre (50-ft) high falls.
These are just two examples of trails where the spectacular scenery will leave you breathless.
