Begin the Coxhealth Mountain Trail with your guide as you take pathways that seek out the most beautiful trails and discover the best views the area has to offer.

The 10-kilometre return trail includes a steady hike up the face of the mountain. At the first rest stop, there is a cascading waterfall. The trail levels off at the top with a panoramic view of the surrounding communities, including views of the region and the Highlands of Cape Breton. From this point, you can return the way you came, or continue on the northern loop to experience old growth forest with large eastern hemlocks, yellow birch and sugar maple trees. Watch for animals such as porcupine, racoon, fox, moose, white-tailed deer and bald eagles en route.
