I've always wanted to get up there for a trip, I've only ever been into Port Hawkesbury. We had midget hockey provincials in Canso one year, and Port Hawkesbury had the only hotels available, and we didn't have any spare time to explore. We lost in the final to a team from New Waterford, so we didn't really feel like sticking around afterwards. Looking back now, I wish we had of taken a few extra days off. Hopefully one of these days once the kids are a bit older I can a make trip of it and hopefully make it on a club run.

About three years ago Gerri and I took a trip to Cape Breton.We left Halifax at about midnight and drove to Baddeck.From there to Cheticamp and through the Cabot Trail.Drove out to Meat Cove and then to Louisburgh.We planned three days for this and took our time enjoying the scenery and landscape.We treked the Skyline Trail located in the Cabot Trail.About 15 minutes into this trail we came across a moose.I'm told this is the best trail to see moose.At the end of the trail the view is wicked.Amazing sights throughout all of Cape Breton.We observed many waterfalls on our trip.Spent half a day at the fortress in Louisburgh.We spent our evenings at "THE GRAND HOTEL".Thats right, we slept in the Grand Cherokee.When we were done for the day we found an old road or lot and camped out.Had the bbq,cooler and made a fire.In my opinion this is the best way to see Cape Breton.On the way home she said " I can't wait to go back".I agreed with her.Dave

Our family did the trail when we were kids. Ford supercab with a camper. I remember riding along the Cabot Trail up in the top of the camper...unfortunately, I also remember the abscess tooth I had for the whole trip.
Joan, the boys and I spent a few days up there several years ago, was a great trip, even Louisburg in the pouring rain. Saw a moose and calf on the trail standing on the outside of a guardrail with a massive drop to the shore below them like it was nothing.

Mom is from Neil's Harbour. I was born in Creignish. For whatever reason I didn't go around the trail until my mid-teens and have only been around a few times in the last 15 years. I'm amazed by the scenery every time. It's a trip everyone should make.
Done the trail countless times. I recommend Dunvegan camp site depending which side you start on, you could start the trail or end it there. Being between Inverness and Cheticamp. I spend most my summer there, good trails near by and the Margaree river for fishing. The beach is also one of the best in NS.

Haven't been up that way in a while, did it quite a few years ago and did some hiking up in the park. Was thinking of going up this fall to take wifey and kiddlet..since neither have ever been to Cape Breton.
And i just found out that my 2nd great grandmother was from Main-a-dieu and her parents were from there and the Louisburg area
