Welcome to Cabot Trail
Along the way, artists' workshops dot the southeastern flank of the trail like Easter eggs, from Englishtown to St Ann's Bay. Seize this treasure: drop in to a studio or two to meet an interesting mishmash of characters. You'll find pottery, leather, glass and pewter workers, painters and sculptors, and discover living remnants of Mi'kmaw and Acadian culture.
The most breathtaking scenery is found on the island's northwestern shore as the trail slopes down to Pleasant Bay and Chéticamp. Keep your eyes on the circuitous road, as tempting as the views become: there are plenty of places to stop, look and hike through a tapestry of terrain for boundless vistas over the endless, icy ocean.
