Hiking Cape Breton Island

A film crew visited to explore, hike and document the area on Kelly’s mountain.  Took a helicopter over St. Ann’s Bay

and you see what they saw from the air, investigating whether the Chinese settled before the Europeans here.


Original settlers are really the Mi’kmaq, here over 10,000 years, as hikers and hunters and fishers.

You can see the site of Glooscap Cave, and Indian Brook leading to the Highlands and French River Wilderness

and past there to the Cape Breton Highland Park.

Great hikes start at Cabot Shores–along the beach and  up along to Indian Brook Falls.

Enjoy nearby hikes, including:  Indian Brook Falls, Red Island Trail, beach hike along St. Ann’s Bay opposite
