Cabot Trail

The Cabot Trail is a highway and scenic roadway on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Cabot Trail

The Cabot Trail measures 298 km (185 miles) in length and completes a loop around the northern tip of the island, passing along and through the Cape Breton Highlands.

The  Cabot Trail is considered one of the world's most scenic destinations, with stunning ocean vistas, old-growth forests, prehistoric rock scarred by glaciers, and the mysterious Cape Breton Highlands. Along with the fine scenery, the Cabot Trail offers visitors a fantastic culinary experience. Lobster is a specialty in many restaurants along the Cabot Trail, as fresh local seafood can be found in all communities. Look for crab, oysters, mussels, clams, scallops, and mackerel, all raised or caught locally.
