When we first decided to visit Atlantic Canada, Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia was one of our top destinations. This section of the Cabot Trail has gorgeous rocky beaches, unique hikes and so much culture! We even got to enjoy a “Kitchen Party” while staying at Cheticamp Campground – complete with fiddle music, singing and delicious potato pancakes with molasses. However, the hiking was the real highlight of our trip. There are so many options to choose from in this area. But, we loved these five short hikes in Cape Breton Highlands because you can fit in a few in one day. Plus, they really highlighted the varying landscape of this famed area.
