Le vieux chemin du Cap-Rouge

Cape Breton Highlands National Park

Follow the route of the old Cabot Trail from Trout Brook as it gently climbs to a ridge midway up Jerome Mountain, offering views of the Atlantic along the entire length of this trail. Traces of Acadian history abound, with the remains of an old school, foundations of the former residents' houses, and the old wharf at La Bloc visible at various points on the journey. Your efforts will be rewarded at the final look-off featuring spectacular views of Presqu'île and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. An exhibit at the look-off provides further information on the families who used to live here.
