This is a loop trail, and we did it in a clockwise direction. The view points are all on the first half of the trail doing it this way. The second half follows a brook back down and is pretty in it's own way. Either way is uphill going one way, and downhill the next so you get a lot of exercise to see the fantastic views from the top after you climb almost 1,200 feet..
Starting to get up there
The first half of the loop going clockwise has been made accessible by ATV's that are used by park staff. We didn't see any this particular time though. In fact, we didn't see anybody else on the whole trail.
Getting close to the top
At the top, a beautiful view looking down on the town of Cheticamp and Cheticamp Island
Coming down the inland trail is definitely a hiking trail and not accessible by ATV. So no worries of one of them noisy things coming by to disturb your hike.
Following the babbling brook
Overall, a good hike. Only one black fly bite, and a couple of mosquito bites. Not enough to put insect repellent on. LOTS of moose poop, but didn't see any moose. Quite a bit of bear poop as well. Didn't see any bears either!
The sign says this trail should take 3-4 hours, but we did the entire thing in 2 1/2 hours even though we stopped to admire the view a few times. But, we do tend to try and hike fairly quickly to get the heart pumping!
